You lay cradled in my arms, looking peaceful, yet I could feel your pain, see the anguish in your beautiful green eyes.

You were my soulmate and I couldn’t bear to say goodbye. But that was selfish; you were so very ill.

I held you as they put the needle in your leg. You didn’t even flinch, it was I who had tears pouring down my face. My green eyes fixed on yours, I saw when the last spark of life was extinguished. My heart splintered, leaving behind a cold and empty void. Part of me will forever be yours.

Your story is so tearful, Carrie. I didn’t realize that my tears were already dripping while reading your story. Well done, Carrie.

You captured all the sadness of losing a loved pet beautifully, Carrie.

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
