For Klaus… love Lulu

“In Your Eyes”  Peter Gabriel

love I get so lost, sometimes
days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
when I want to run away
I drive off in my car
but whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

all my instincts, they return
the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway of a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
the heat I see in your eyes

love, I don’t like to see so much pain
so much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired, working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

and all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway of a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
the heat I see in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes

  1. That is a beautiful song, Lulu! We hope it won’t be too awfully long before you can think of all the good times without so much sadness. Remember…all of your DWB friends are here for you! Whatever you need…just let us know!

    Please take care of yourself!

    Aire-hugs,
    Lana (Mom to the 3 P’s)

  2. Oh, Lulu, how sweet that is. I hope both you and Bogart are doing okay. You are both still in our thoughts and we’re still sending you some good vibes to help you get through this ruff time.
    Love
    Kaos and Hilary

  3. Tears flowing, that is so sweet. Love to you Lulu, give Bogie a pat.

  4. Lulu,

    I find myself coming back to your blog — just to be closer and let you know, however silently, that you and Bogart are constantly in my thoughts. What you’ve just experienced is what most of us fear more than anything — the loss of the one we love. Your tragedy touches our hearts – and we want to be there to comfort you and help you heal.

    And I keep thinking about Bogart, and hope his dear doggie soul will come to understand that his Daddy had to go to the Rainbow Bridge first — but will be there waiting — the reverse of what we have so often shared in this community.

    With love,

    Joan and the Barkalots

  5. Perfectly beautiful.

    Could you send me an e-mail so I can get you back in my address book?

  6. We are very sorry for your loss. Sending kitty hugs and purrs and also a few woofs from our friend Maggie the schnauzer.

  7. Bogart, that is a lovely poem and a grrrreat tribute to your Dog Dad Klaus. Bogart take care of your Mom Lulu, she will need you. We find out about Klaus crossing the rainbow bridge this morning, but had to wait to get home to comment.

    Last February we wrote a poem called Paw Prints in the Snow in tribute to Grand Maw (Dog Dad’s mother) who passed away. We are only amatures and the poem is meant for a parent, you might find solace in knowing that through your love for each other, Bogart and the Blog, paw prints have been left in the snow.

  8. This is so touching… we hope you and Bogart are doing ok. I am sure your darling Klaus loves the tribute.

  9. Sweet dear Bogart,

    May your big Airedale heart be blessed for all the love you gave your Dad in his earthly life! Just imagine all the love he is bathed in on the other side of the Rainbow, given to him unconditionally by all those four-legged furry souls, barking and purring around him …

    Dear Lulu,

    As long as you remember your Klaus, he will live in your heart, in your memories. A silly little butterfly in the middle of the winter snow storm – it’s him, a ripple on the surface of the spring key on your walk with Bogie – it’s him, a whimsical whisper descending from the tops of the trees in summer woods – it’s him, a glowing autumn leaf landing on the palm of your hand – it’s him, your Klaus telling you of his undying Love for you. May time bring peace and healing for your bleeding heart, may you learn to see beauty and wisdom in life once again, and may your love for Klaus guide you on your journey, lighting up your way, giving you strength when there is none left. The story of your and Klaus’ love and life, however short it was, inspired so many hearts. May your heart be Blessed, dear Lulu. Blessings upon your little strong family!
    With deep love and respect,
    Andy’s mama and papa, and our Airedale Angel Andy, who is – no doubt!!! – right there with Klaus, watching lovingly over him for you and Bogart …

  10. Beautiful words!
    Taylor and Buzzer send you and Bogart sweet wet doggy kisses, we and the other cats are sending you both gentle headbutts, nosekisses, purrrrrs and (((hugs))).

    Lulu & Bogart, you are in all our thoughts!

  11. Please know that I am constantly thinking of you and Bogart. I feel like I know you because of the blogs.
    Titan is doing good and growing up way too fast!
    If possible I would like to know the arrangements for Klaus and an address that I could send a card to you and Bogart.
    Lots of Airedale love going your way,
    Denise
