My little darling, Tempo contracted a unknown illness a few days back, I was finally allowed to take him to the vet, who said he was in very bad shape, and gave him some antibiotics/Injection/and some Fluids.
The past two days, counting even today, were very hard on me. We were really close, and his playful/devious personality always brought a smile on my face no matter how stressed out I am.
I remember when he was breathing his last breaths, he looked up towards me and his eyes became glossy. I was cradling him, trying to keep him warm and he died in my arms. It was so sudden, that I was in shock most of the time.
Honestly, the best pet anyone could ask for. Although I've only had him for a year (or so) I could tell we were very close.
May he find Peace where ever he is.
I love you, my little angel.
I do now want to, nor did take a photo, of him in his passing. I wanted to show respect to his body. So I'm just going to show him before he was being slowly taken away from me.
A poem, I got from a source; not only for my little angel but for all who have experienced something this terrible.
"Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die..."

Plus, I'm not sure if I'm really welcomed in his site, due to me not having anymore budgies. And I don't think I'm readying to get another anytime soon ... I will, just not for some time.
