You Will Always Be My Friend

Posted by

"But if you tame me, it will be as if the sun came to shine on my life. I shall know the sound of a step that will be different from all the others. Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground. Yours will call me, like music, out of my burrow".


“In one of those stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night. And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me. You will always be my friend...I shall not leave you.” ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

This is beautiful, emotional tribute to a marvelous friend now gone - but your chosen passages are perfect...and choked me up, I love the love we have with animals...Wherever you are, Nacho, be happy and free and know that you are loved.
