Unhappy You'll always be my boy, Blue

Blue didn't make it to his first birthday. In just the few short months I had him, he was the light of my life. He made living alone transform from something so lonely into something magical. Blue was feisty and stubborn, with quite a little attitude--definitely momma's little bird. He was just starting to do tricks and I know you were on the verge of talking when everything deteriorated so rapidly.

I thought you fell and hit your head, causing a concussion that led to temporary loss of motor skills. The vet said you were perfectly healthy and offered no explanation as to why you suddenly "forgot" how to climb around, something you normally never stopped doing. After this onset of mobility loss, you became the most loving bird I've ever seen. Your undying affection and reliance on me as your mother makes my heart fill with elation, knowing I did the best I could to make your last weeks the best they could have ever been. You pushed through these last 2 weeks, letting me bring you to my family on Thanksgiving, and they were so happy to meet you. Everyone on this planet thinks you are just the cutest little bird.

My heart broke into pieces to see you suffer on the day you crossed the rainbow bridge. The sadness and pain in your eyes as you hung your head in defeat. My little trooper, trying to fight the disease that plagued you until your very last breath.

I cannot express enough the gratitude, love, and happiness you brought to my world Blue. I will never forget you.

I am so very sorry for your loss of Blue. May he fly free and high. These little bundles of feathers are such a joy. I feel your pain in the loss.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Not knowing what the health issue was must make it that much harder.

What a handsome boy he was. Thinking of you.....

I am sorry for your loss. I have no words that can make your loss anymore bearable or help you understand it any better than you already do. It is amazing how something so small can steal such a large portion of our hearts as quickly as they do, but somehow they do it. Our little ones are bright creatures of feather and air. Their stay with us is always short, sadly for many all too brief, but in the end we will see them again in what comes next. When we lost our parrotlet Bo the poem below gave us comfort. I hope it does for you as well.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When a bird dies that has been especially close to someone here, that bird goes to the Rainbow Bridge. At the Rainbow Bridge, there are meadows, hills, and beautiful trees of all kinds where all our special friends can fly and climb, hang and flap, hop and run, jump and play, squawk and squeal and sing together.

There is plenty of good food, including grapes and peanuts, ice cream and cheese, spaghetti and especially lots of pizza. There is crystal clear water in brooks and springs are filled with water as well as every kind of delicious fresh fruit juice.

One warm spring even runs full of the coffee they can now drink their fill of without hearing a single no-no. There is a lot of glorious sunshine and sweet warm rain when they want it and our friends are warm and comfortable and totally at peace.

All the birds that had been ill or old are restored to health and vigour and to their natural incredible beauty. Their feathers shine, their wing feathers are whole and their eyes gleam once again with vitality. Those who were hurt, maimed, ignored, or broken-hearted are made whole again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days gone by.

The birds are happy and content. Except for one small thing: they each miss someone very special to them who had to be left behind when the bird returned home. Still they all fly and play happily and safely and noisily together: even the grouchiest greys and orneriest senegal, the tiniest finches, the grandest macaws and the sassiest of parrotlets. *

But the day comes for each bird when he suddenly stops and looks far into the distance. His body freezes and his bright eyes are intent as he watches and listens in silence. Suddenly he begins to fly from the group, soaring over the green grass, his wings flapping harder and harder!

You have been spotted - and he shrieks to you and then calls your name and his own and cries again and again, as he rushes towards you.When you and your bird finally meet, you cling to each other in joyous reunion, knowing you will never be parted again.

Your face and your fingers and even your toes are covered with beak nibbles and soft ecstatic kisses. Your hair is preened by that special beak, and his head bends under your fingers to invite your touch. Your hands again find their way under beloved wings, to caress the downy softness beneath.

You look once more into the trusting eyes of your companion, so long from your physical life on earth but never for an instant absent from your heart. Your tears of joy are gently brushed away by those beloved wings and feeling immersed once more in total contentment and love, you and your beloved companion cross the Rainbow Bridge together.
