lionwhisperersa You put up a brave fight my beautiful Amy. Here’s a beautiful song written for you by a beautiful person. Thank you @shanivans for writing this song, you have absolutely no idea how much it means to me. At this point in time my heart is desperately sore once again.
An ordinary man walking blindly into an unlikely story,
Accepting the unbeckoned fatherhood of two cubs.
His youth disguising the monumental path that lay ahead,
To traverse a path less travelled, “I cannot leave them” he said.
Meg and Amy - chapter one, unfolding a story for many more,
It was on that day he knew, for them, he would go to war.
From one single man won over, to a million more hearts awoken
Each passing year of love, a step closer to the day his heart was broken. They spent beautiful seasons walking with him across the African landscape,
These special sisters weaving a common love between a world of strangers.
Unfolding the secret lives of the world’s most iconic character,
Illuminating the softness of what some called simply predator. They say the deeper the love, the deeper the grief
But on that day the sun stopped in its path, the birds withheld their song,
The orchestra of the bushveld hushed to a whisper,
As precious Amy took her last breath Three million tears descended from a thousand different skies,
From behind screens, at work, in class, at home, gentles whispers of goodbye.
Small moments marked with emptiness, the sting of her absence on this journey,
Gratitude to an animal that brought light to the darkness of many. He suddenly knew he was not alone, and Amy was not gone,
Her presence lingered on, in the road ahead, in what still had to be done.
And in that moment he understood the depth of his love, measured against the expanse of his pain,
Knowing it was worth it, knowing for her… he would do it all again.
