jimmy n me:))

one of the best companions life offered me was my pet jimmy.... came home jst 15days old...n we loved the surprise by dad,though mom was grumbling!
he wagged his tail wen we came home from school, licked our faces, n always begged for food:)
he grew in no time...while he chewed all possible things...from shoes to furniture...n was treated like the kid of the home......
all fell in love with him....but he fell n love with mom...cos she fed him...n with me...i dont know why?i told him all my woes n he licked my tears if i cried....but if jimmy was hurt we all cried....
he was a big boy n all were scared of his jaw n teeth....but not me.........i pampered him the most...got him chewes n a new belt in his neck....wud give him a bath ,brush his hair,feed him morsels from my plate,sleep on the same pillow,dust away the tics,take him for a walk or rather he wud take me for one......n much more.......somehow he became my child, though i wud tie a rakhi on him...n he wud be delighted abt it! he was extemely intelligent n understood all that was said to him...
one day he got a bad wound..n the vet said he mite lose his leg....i cried with the rest...but dressed his wound repeatedly...he howled as it pained but only allowed me to do it...n love healed him....
yrs passed attachment increased n we dint realise that jimmy was no more a young boy....he was growing old but to me he was still my child...dint ever sleep without giving him a bed....dint ever eat without giving him a part...kissed him on his face n hugged him everyday...n if he was hurt it hurt me...
jst the manisfestation of his old age worried me...i knew time was less....n wen he walked with difficulty i helped him for slow walks...gave him medicines wen he was ill...but cried abt knowing the fact...that someday jimmy my child will be gone.......
he was ill n i knew it....got a call from mom...come home soon jimmy is very ill....i cudnt stop my tears n cried aloud on the station while i got in the train..came home jst to see dad digging a grave in the garden..i dint want to believe ,stepped home to see jimmy lying still...sleeping 4ever..cudn wake him up..i jst collapsed in grief....n only we cud know the pain.......that mischievious kid who gave me joy all life..who wiped my tears n shared my pillow was no more.......
i still sit at his grave..n look into the sky...say a hi to the lovliest star......my jimmy....
