Betty, My Love…The Journey Never Ends For You And Me…

Betty, my love…
…the journey never ends for you and me…
There is a journey that never ends…
…a journey that revels in the now…
The soul lives in that awareness somehow,
An allegiance to an eternal vow…

A super refined beauty you were,
Adorned with black and white spots…
…possibly the finest of the Dalmatian brigade,
You came into our life in 2007,
When you already were six years of age,
Perhaps with sentiments of having being betrayed,
…though we tried our best to dissuade…

…the ‘family’ that gave you up,
With a bland, indifferent, insensitive excuse,
…unable to gauge your value and worth…
…of emotions displaying callous dearth…
…thus so they did manipulate and impassively stipulate –

We have a child now…
…so this ‘dog’ kindly ‘rehabilitate’,

Your self-esteem their attitude did wholly negate,
Their decision naturally left your morale frayed…
Yet, it is a beautiful fact,
Exuding so much love… 
…so well you did re-adapt…
We had to meet in fulfilment of our soul contract,

With Mother Sai’s sweet grace…
…we already had Mowgli…

…another super fine representative of your race,
Therefore,
Initially you were supposed to be a special guest…
…till we found you a loving habitat…
…where amidst beings compassionate…
…you could joyfully blend and integrate,
But we did your steadfast commitment underestimate…
…to us all…every bit of your exuberant  love you did dedicate,
Left with no choice…
…to your charm we simply had to capitulate…
…your fond involvement…
…adoration and affection acknowledge and reciprocate…

Even our total acceptance of you,
…perhaps did your sense of abandonment…
…only to a certain extent abate,
Thus, you remained possessive about your new home…
…right till the end…
With us all you spent a memorable decade,
Your intolerance of any new entry,
Whether a human offspring or any canine…
…even that of your ‘husband’ Mowgli…
…was plainly conveyed,
With persistent low growls…
…your grievance you did emphatically state…

With these sounds you constantly followed baby Saiesh…
…through his infant years…
Nothing could keep him away from you…
…this grandchild always remained calm…
…instinctively he knew you meant no harm…
…it was an involuntarily act…
…for you were bereft of any hate…
As he grew…three-year-old Saiesh…
…would growl back at you…
…your snarls he wonderfully learnt to imitate,
Though we laughed it off,
We knew it was because of your fear…
…of being forsaken…
…deep was the pain that did scar your psyche…
…and for the rest of your life your reactions dominate…

You loved your walks…
…and we enjoyed walking you,
A true lady you were…
…and it reflected in your gait,
Your playful son got all our attention,
But you never grudged him nor your fate,
At play time you ran almost as fast as the wind…
…your pink tongue hanging out…
…as you chased the tennis ball…
…your tail going round and round…
…such sheer joy you did emanate…
You always relished your food…
…and from your routine you never could deviate,
Till with the passage of time…
…age caught up with you…
…and your remaining moments on earth progressively devastate…

You suffered with dignity…
…only the ones of your race…
…have been blessed with the ability to do so…
Your organs degenerated gradually,
Your medical reports were a blow,
A peaceful way out we hoped to see,
Tears welled and the core felt sore…
…to watch you retch and writhe helplessly,
We couldn’t bear your struggle and agony,
…and were forced to take the decision…
…the vet did suggest and foresee…

Once again today,
Your presence in our life we do celebrate,
Utterly grateful that you were sent our way,
This gesture of the universe we do absolutely appreciate,
So noble and flawless was…is your love,
It encircles us perpetually,
Your selfless affection is beyond us to measure or evaluate,
How much we meant to you…
…in innumerable ways you gently did illustrate…
You are and will continue to remain a part of us…
…this we do emphatically reiterate…
At this time we perceive you as a radiant light…
…in the shimmering glades of forevermore…
…where the essence of all beings do congregate…
…where joy never does fluctuate…

So Betty, my love…
…i know presently pleasantly in ‘that’ place…
…that knows not any gloomy greys…
…increasingly illumined…
…by the everlasting beauty of glistening rays…
…you understand…
…the journey never ends for us…for you and me…
For there is no journey and there is no end…
…only a blissful stillness…a oneness that revels in the now…
Within Mother Sai…
…in that Effulgent Ocean of Consciousness…
…in that luminous realm of forevermore…
…in that golden sphere there is no goodbye…
The soul lives in that awareness somehow,
An unswerving allegiance to an eternal vow…
