This is me, back when I was a kid, and in the day I was given a tiny bird, a bird that turned out to be not only my pet, but my best friend. She was part of my life for about 16 years, until she passed away back in 2010. I miss her, so very much, and whenever I think of her, I break down because I cared very much for her.
And to this day I still continue to have this sadness within me that doesn't seem to disappear. But I know I can't mourn forever, and instead rejoice because I know she is watching me, up there, and must continue on. Thank you my friend, for all those years of companionship.
