Default My dear Penguin

Penguin - July 21st, 2016


It’s with extreme sorrow, incredulousness and a very heavy heart that I share the sad news of the very sudden and unannounced departure of my special girl, my blue masked lovebird Penguin.

DSCF3293 by aluz391, on Flickr

Your arrival to my home and heart was unexpected and so was your passing... You came to me as a lost stray on June 15, 2012. The singing from my lovebird pair must have lured you into my neighbourhood and I managed to rescue you from the outside world. Soon afterwards, you became part of the flock when no one has claimed ownership over you.

It took me a few months to truly understand you, but when the barriers were surpassed and you showed your true self, I was able to see just how special you were. I will forever cherish your clownish ways and your funny expressions, the way you would roll on your back sideways and then look at me, you would also preen your foot while that position. You truly lived in a world of your own, that was what set you apart from all the pet birds I had so far and made you even more special.
Thank you for allowing me in your world, the way I see it you were the one who have rescued me, many times even.
These 4 years were much too short, but I know you were happy and had everything you could have wished for. I will miss your presence and all the little things, our special greetings where I would say your name in a melodious and funny way. Your mate Fénix is also missing you, but we will be all right.
Rest in peace my dear Penguin. You will forever be in my heart.

Ana,

You have my deepest sympathy on your loss of darling little Penguin.
She was so special, much loved and will be sorely missed.

Fly high and free sweet Penguin; rest peacefully funny girl.
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.
I'm following the path God laid you see.
I flew to Him when I heard His call
I had to go and leave you all..

I could not stay another day
To chirp, to fly, to preen, to play.
All things undone must stay that way
I found my peace at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A song, a snuggle and many a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savoured much
My happy home, my Mommy’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't spend yours now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now; He set me free.

Thinking of you and Penguin with great sadness Ana.
She was lent for a short, but treasured time.
Fly high on your Angel Wings dear Penguin x

Ana. I am so very sorry for the loss of penguin. Penguin had a wonderful Mum like you Ana. Penguin loved you so much she would not want you to be sad. Please accept my symphony.. I read your post and the tears fall down my face.. I made up a poem for you.. Penguin will be forever in your heart.

Rest in peace sing a beautiful song and fly free beautiful Penguin.




Beautiful penguin you are not Gone
yet never forgotten,
Although we are apart,
Your spirit lives within me,
Penguin you are Forever in my heart.
And I love you dearly.

Smile My Dear Penguin

Dear Ana, I was just thinking how glad I was that our TB family was healthy happy, safe and enjoying each others wonderful contributions that sparkle in Gods realm. Tears cannot express the place she holds in your tender heart. Penguin is one of my special "birdys" her picture is close in my mind when I think of you and your wonderful. Flock. Such a special little one who came to share your days. Her spirit is near to comfort your heart through the day, even as her little wings have carried her back to be with God and take her place in his glorious crown. We are all here to help you pass the long days that seem so empty without her pert little presence, always ready to play and add her comment to the day. May God Bless and Keep you and Penguin.
Jo Ann
