Where You Are
By Josh Groban

How I got Jake is a short story.
At the time I was getting the Bristol Press newspaper.
Every year my old high school would have a carnival to raise
money for their scholorship program. As I was
reading the paper I saw a small article about Sub-Acute
nursing home having a "Adopt A Pet" day. North Shore
Animal League from New York and the North Haven Animal
Shelter were cosponsering the event. So I thought I would
go and see if there were any adult cats to be adopted.
There were only four. Two of them were females,
one was about 2 years old and very pretty. The
other just had kittens and stayed in back of the kennel.
Then there were Jake and his brother Samson. I
looked at him but he was a bit shy and he was diabetic.
So then I looked at Jake and he seemed friendly and
wanted to go home. They were
both dropped off at the North Haven
Animal Shelter by a older couple who could no longer take
care of them. The photo's that I sent of Jake showed where
he liked to hang out. The window sill watching the
world go by, sleeping on the couch, laying on the floor
and occasionaly on the stairs. But he would always rest
his head on the right armrest of my recliner. I adopted
Jake towards the end of May and his vet apointment was
the 8th of June. Little did I relize how short we would
have to be together. I was having chemo. treatments
for the breast cancer that I had. It made me sick
each time and I would end up at the hopital ER. The
third time I stayed for almost 2 weeks and ended up at
a rehab. facility in Farmington, Ct.
Karen became Jake's adopted
mother for 4 months before she noticed that he was not
feeling well. It turns out that he was also diabetic.
She did her best to take care of him and her own family
and pets. But it got to be to much her and we both agreed
that it was best the he go to the Burlington Vet Ctr. to
stay and get well. He was there for 4 months. We
both came home at the end of May.
The rest you know. And that is
Jake's story with the short time we had together

Not a night goes by that I don't touch
your heart with gentle touches of love.
You are the face of caring and
family that I hold dear and near.
Is not a separation, in our hearts we
still touch and dance in our dreams.

Mama not a day goes by that I
don't touch your face with gentle kisses.
in the rays of the sun. I have not
left you, always part of you.
On that day we bonded that was
forever and always.

Not a mile goes by that I
don't walk them by your side.
My steps will forever walk with you.
This life we lead has made us who we are.
Each lesson we learn helps us grow.
You have learned something
some never get a chance to know.

True love, reach out and show
them what can be.
For each heart you touch brings
us closer to each other.
The miles will grow shorter.
Each smile you bring to another
you also bring to me.
When all is said and done,
my love is yours.

Ebbing tides of sorrow break,
Over those who will seek but ease.
The hearts and souls and minds that ache,
Waiting for the wind called peace.

The love that came from up above,
Was sent with them to us to teach.
Mission complete, took back his loves,
Now we wait for the wind of peace.

They brought His word to us to learn,
Now they fly on wings of iridescent hue,
A silverwolf was sent to me,
Who now flies with wings of blue.

So learn you well the word of love,
Even tho when gone you feel no ease.
When he takes them back above,
And leaves you searching for
the wind called peace.

I look into eyes time has gentled with love
and I feel a heart I want always to be near
I hear the winds whisper of times yet to be
and I listen to a voice I want always to hear

but I feel too a bond that will never be broken
and I hear the wind whisper softly it will be
even when we are apart we are connected still
by a love that will stand the test of all eternity

though you have traveled on and I yet remain
I still feel your touch on my heart and my soul
and I feel your love soft and warm around me
and I know that what we have will never die
