I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March. You should do it too! Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing!
I'm sure there's a poet's way to write when your cat is dying as the children head to school and your daughter texts you: "Mommy help us" There must be a metaphor for when you're too late he's already dead and your son begs you to say "passed on" instead I wish I could speak in allegory when my daughter lies in bed and says, "Tell me something good, mama. I need to hear something good." The words keep repeating a mantra a poem Tell me something good, mama I need to hear something good Tell me something good, mama I need to hear something good

I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. I can tell Billy was well loved by the picture of the beautiful card. Rest in peace, dear Billy.
Billy sounds like he was a great cat. I am so sorry he passed on. It is so difficult to have a pet….a member of the family die. I can tell he had a good and loving home….but I know you are all very sad. Rest in Peace little Billy.
Oh dear…Rest in peace, Billy – your family loved you dearly and will miss you. The card says it all.
