In the blink of an eye, he was gone.
Just like that, taking his last little breath.
Such a special little creature.
A sweet and lovely, bouncing and playful,
tiny, baby squirrel.
We shall miss you, my little friend.
The joy you brought to our home was endless,
just like your energy and enthusiasm for life.
Goodbye for now, little Dexter.
Climb the trees and eat avocados, bananas and almonds.
Be with your mother and your brother, Felix.
Be free, my little pal. Be free, until we meet again.
Bone of my bone, blood of my blood.
Does it matter if you are or not.
To me, you are my child,
Whether your skin is like mine, or like somebody else’s.
To me, you will still be my child.
A woman gave you life, then she gave you the greatest gift.
She gave you a life she couldn’t give you.
She was bone of your bone. She was blood of your blood.
She was your first mother. She heard your first cry.
I will wipe all your tears. I will kiss away your fears.
She and I will love you forever and a day.
You are a special child. You have been blessed.
You have been wanted before you were born.
Your mothers will love you, one in her heart only,
But I get to hold you. Say a prayer for us both everyday.
You are our child, but it took two of us to mold you.
You are blessed child. You were adopted and are so loved.
