Recently I came across this article.
It must have been on Flipboard or Facebook
Or something like that.
The article explained why we should treasure
The times that we share with our cats and dogs.
They age much faster than us; we would
See them as a puppy or kitten.
A decade whizzes by, and then
They are gone.
I was reminded by L's dog of
More than ten years.
He has lost all but four of his teeth.
He used to enjoy his walks
These days he stops after a few steps.
I decided to check on Tigger's age.
I have never been good with remembering birthdays.
His birthdate is (tentatively)
7th of November 2012.
Tigger will turn seven years old
That makes him the human equivalent of
44 to 56 years. He's going to get
Older than me; not just older,
But older at a faster rate.
Like sands through the hourglass
So are the days of our lives
Pause and enjoy the moment
Relish it as it lingers
For we may never pass this way again
