I'll never forget some years ago,
when the very first call came in.
It's little life in this old world,
was slowly coming to an end.

The fear...the panic...the desperation
all filled his weary eyes
As long as I live I'll never forget
the pain that filled his cries.

Please...I'm begging, don't let me die
I want so much to live.
I want someone to just help me
...I have so much to give

I don't understand the pain inside
that leaves my body cold.
This driving fear that steady wracks
my scared and tortured soul.

This lonliness engulfing me
has become to hard to bear.
this heart inside me needs to know
that someone out there cares.

His pleading eyes that stared at me
revealed all this to me.
His journey here...into my heart
was what God meant to be.

As I looked upon his shattered body
...and inhaled his mutilation
Inside my soul...I knew I shared
his total desperation.

With his taut and mangled body there
our eyes were intertwined
The torture that claimed his weary life
It now...was claiming mine.

I told him the road ahead was long
...and the journey would be unsure
...It has to be as kindred spirits
and together...we can endure.

He seemed to grasp my every thought
and I felt his trust begin.
As I held him gently to my heart
...he knew he had a friend.

Take any fear...any thoughts that he might not make it and
replace them with strength and the assurance that the two
of you can win. As much as he needs vet care and medications
...the will to live and the ability to fight for life and
and believe in his self is a big part of making it. If any
life gives up and believes it is going to die...the war is
already over before life ever leaves the body.
It is a tough road you travel with him...he can be a tyrant
and the times your bitten will be many...it is part of the fight. Just always remember...he loves you and he needs you.

Mary those of us that have had one can definitly relate, and that is what keeps us all going, not only their will to live, but our will that is stronger to help them live. It is very hard to ever describe the PASSION that fills our souls with these guys.

Someone recently asked me, How I could stand to look at caspers picture on a regular basis, (he is my avatar on the sm site), (with her knowing it must be painful) I answered, it is simple. Casper was an inspiration to all of us, he set us working to help more like him, he is the front line of our passions, and his death was not in vain, because of him , we do have the sm community, we do have the sm site, and we now can help many others like him, from having to suffer as he has. He was our hope, he was the future, and his life has opened the doors to many other lives.

His avatar, is my reminder, never to get too frustrated to quit, and sometimes we all feel that way, he is the reminder there is hope for all of them.

We feel his life breathe through us everyday.

Thank you Mary - your words touch the souls of all who love and wish to protect these precious "Little People"

B - Thank you for all you do - It seems that the more we learn - the more we know we just don't know


:grey: We will be known forever by the tracks we leave :grey:

Hi Pockets,

lol one of my favorite phrases. lol we went through a bunch of them a while back didn't we..?

anyway I am sure Mary and all others in the sm community, will agree with me, when I say..

for as much as it seems that we do, it never seems like enough. That is where the frustrations come in, but looking back where we were years ago, we have come a long way. but you are right(especially in this area,) the more we learn, the more we find we don't know.

and another is... the more answers we get, each answer still leaves us with even more questions, so instead of answers, we find ourselves with just another step forward, and lots more questions to answer.
