Feeling the loss.

Baby left me today. I buried her next to Asha at the top of the stairs leading to the river. I put a tiny bird cage over her grave with the door held open. I cleaned out her cage and put her toys in a paper bag along with her water bottles, perches and food dish. I did not wait for Robert to get home to help me this time. It was only fair that I did this alone. I was there when Asha left us but Baby was alone. I am feeling not only the loss but regret as well.
