Purrsday Poetry: Warmth Of Heart

Hi everyone,

Today’s Purrsday Poetry post comes from Blues Wolf who runs a grief support group on Facebook.

Warmth Of Heart

An Angel sat by the blue waters that flowed
below Rainbow Bridge. Waters that were made
from the many tears shed for the angels, when they
ascended to the bridge. These waters were made from love.

This angel had not been at the bridge long and worried
about his loved ones. He knew the pain that his family felt.
He was watching his family very closely. How can I get
them to see that by bringing another into their heart
is not replacing me? He had seen so many who needed
a loving home. His family would be the perfect ones to
give them that. The keeper of the winds spoke to this
Angel and explained that it took time for them to heal.
That right now his family was feeling his loss
very deeply. They are afraid to love again.

The angel wanted to ease the hearts of his family and
let them know he was well. ‘Can I send them one to
warm their Souls. One who needs them as much
as they need him?’ The Keeper Of The Winds
nodded his approval and left the Angel to find
a companion for his family.

Many days were spent looking for the right companion to
to send. Then one was found. A small kitten
sat crying at the moon asking for help. He had never
known the gentle touch of a family. But he had been told
about it by others who had been reunited with their
loved ones. Leaving him alone to dream. The Angel
shed many tears for this lost one. He was cold,
hungry and dirty. Thinking of his warm bed by the fire
going to waste now. The Kitten would fit that bed perfectly.

Keeper Of The Winds please bring this lonely one to
my family so all may heal together. A glowing star
guided their path to the Kitten. They were watched
by wary eyes that also held hope. Have they come for me?
Coming out from behind a tree he walked up to them.
Looking up into tear filled eyes of ones who sensed
the angel near. Giving a small weak whimper
the Kitten got their attention. Eyes meet and
a bond was made. Gentle touches were felt for the
first time. A dream had come true.

The Angel whispered ‘never feel guilty for giving
love. Through this one who has been found, we will
touch again.’

      1. This is an amazing poem. We just lost our Lucy a few weeks ago. And even though the loss was so hard, we knew we had room to rescue another kitty. We didn’t want to replace Lucy, we just wanted to be able to give a forever family to a sweet feline spirit. We went to our local Humane Society to pick our new family member and ended up adopting two. It did help heal my broken heart and what is crazy is that I see so many of Lucy’s personality traits in my new kitty, Lizzy. That makes my heart smile.

  1. I personally can say it is scary to think about loving again after having your heart hurt so badly.
    I find this writing touches the very core of my heart and makes me kinda want again. i felt hot silver tears running down the left cheek of the wolfman as i read it. i thank you very much for sharing something that i feel will warm even a heart turned colder than my own. love and hugs to all of you from lobowolf.

      1. It was a definite match made in heaven! That is until The Creature comes around, or the human wipes my eyes – then I start thinking the maybe the match might be from the OTHER place….MOL!!😹

  2. This is one of the BEST poems you have ever blogged. It would be a GREAT idea to post it in CAT LOVER GROUP. This is an excellent, poignant, well-penned poem, clearly by a VERY EXPERIENCED and published author. All hail!
