and shed a few tears. First I must say that your songwriting
is stunning, the lyrics in this song are so insightful, so beautiful
and expressive, I was deeply touched and I won't forget it.

to life so powerfully and yet so tenderly, and I was there in the story,
as I have been on one or two occasions when we have lost our pets to

our pets bring to us, and of course the sadness and loss that we
experience when they pass away also M.D.
