Ain't No Sunshine

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
She's gone much too long
Any time she goes away

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
Wonder if she's gone to stay
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home
Anytime she goes away

I know
She's gone to stay
It's breakin' me up
Anytime she goes away
Gotta leave the young thing alone
There ain't no sunshine when she's gone

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And she's gone much too long
Any time she goes away

Never Warm What You Have Done

morning sun will rise to bring
warmth and stirring, birds to sing
paws and belly, sweet soft face
full color spectrum takes its place
I sing the tune, I coochie-cooo
soon “the whole world smiles with you”

You wiggle, smile
You jump and prance
and we’re so happy
at the first glance

now You’re gone
and my whole day
turns vibrant color
dull and grey

an empty heart
resounding ache
choking gasps
left in your wake

a daily warmth
tries to break through
the shadows cast
they look for you

those tiny pinstripes
of patchy sun
can never warm
what you have done

This Moment Is Great



Walk in the sunshine
The snow and the rain
The simplest joy
Found over again
Scents and reminders
Statements to make
Vague or important
This moment is great

Walk on the sidewalk
On grass or on leaves
Those delicate footsteps
Have left me to grieve
Walk in the sunshine
The snow, sleet and rain
The simplest joy
Remembered again

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

In memory of Fig, I will hold my girls a little closer today. Be good to yourself on this third anniversary.

I don't check this forum often, but I remember Fig's story and what a special girl she was. I am sure she is in a place with lots of warm sunspots and naps.
Honored to serve Gary- a very important IG (as far as he is concerned)
both living in Central Indiana.
