I MISS YOU, LITTLE LION MAN
I've been conditioned to open every door and see him waiting for me, to call out his name every night and have him jump in between us, to wake up cradling him, to get daily hugs, to dance with him and to hear him chirp. My instinct is to hold him while I walk around the house. It's confusing, lonely and quiet to not have him with me. I miss him so much.
Thankfully I have the most amazing friends. A few stopped by during Monday afternoon to say goodbye to him. We've had an out pour of heartfelt messages which mean so much to me. Jaime stopped by with the most beautiful and fragrant flowers. I don't even think she knew they are my favorite kind. Hanna made us dinner two nights in a row because we weren't eating and she sang this beautiful song for us. It makes me cry because it's so sweet and so sad. Thank you, Hanna.
While I had the pleasure of being with Romeo for 7 years, Aumie was his dad for nearly 4 more years. Romeo was left in a box on the doorstep of Aumie's apartment. The couple saw Morpheus in the window and figured Aumie would know what to do with a baby gingerbear. Aumie gave him the best life and has been the best parent of anyone I have EVER known. And Romeo was there for Aumie as he evolved and had major life transitions. They drove across the country when he moved to Portland. Aumie was meant to have Romeo and Romeo was meant to have Aumie.
I am so thankful for all of you. I am eternally thankful for you, Aumie. You allowed me into your life and I was rewarded with the best family.
I love you so much, my little lion man. My little star. My baby bear.
Little star, so you had to go.
You must have wanted him to know.
You must have wanted the world to know.
Poor little thing.
Now they know.
