Who would have known drawing a picture could cause so much crying

This is Tera. She was my very first bird, she was the very best bird in the world.
She was my complete everything. We did everything together, she was my best friend
she was there for me when i had hard times. She was there for me always.
She licked the tears off my cheeks when i cried, she was there when i was happy
She was the one that made me happy. She helped me to overcome my first depression
She was all i could ever ask for.

She's now gone from this mortal world, but i believe she is still somewhere, and
she will definitely exist as long as i remember her.

I have her ashes in an urn  in my showcase, very next to me. I gave her the lucky charm i got
from italy because she deserves all the good things there can be.

She was my everything. And still is, i admit. I haven't been able to move on from this yet at all. It's soon been 2 years since she died.
I still have these breakdowns and I feel like i have nothing to live for anymore. But i try to hold on to live just because I want to be able
to remember her. I have two chicks from her, which i hope i can breed later to continue her legacy.

Where ever you are, my heart goes out for you

Rakkain hanipöö...

I'm so sorry what happened to you. I can see that you really loved Tera and that she was a great friend for you. I can understand how you feel, it's the same with me and my friend who died two years ago either. In the first year I had relapses monthly and kept crying about her... Now when I remember her, it still hurts to know that she's gone but... It usually helps me when I keep saying to myself, that she's actually not really gone. That she will stay as long as I remember her and that she will live on in my heart.
I know it may be not much to say and you've probably heard it many times, but it helped me to overcome my friends death when I keep reminding this:
An important person, no matter friend, family member or pet, they will never be gone, even when it seems so, when you keep remembering them and don't forget them. Keep them in your heart and they will go on live on your heart.

I dont want you to say what to do, but I did it like this. I drew many commeration drawings of my friend (like drawing memory fragments that I collected with her). That helped me to get along with her death. I know it can be really hard without breaking out in tears when doing this. But afterwards when I look at these drawings, it makes me happy.

Dont worry, my dear. It's okay to be sad about this loss, but keep in mind that you matter and that you have people who care about you. I'm certain of that. It would be important to them to see you being happy, just like Tera would have as well. And they will be there to catch you.

No problem, any time...!

What matters that you at least tried to stay positive. It gets me sometime as well, that's not bad. But the important thing is with every fall you experience, that you will stand up again.
There are surely people who are willing to reach you their hand and help you.
I suggest that you talk about this with your close friends or family. Sharing your worries and stuff. It's usually easing.

That's happy for me to hear! Birds inspired me since I was a kid, they are so cute und goofy some times. I wish to take care of one some day, but before that I probably have to learn a lot about them. I want to give my future bird the best care tho! ^^
Just trying to be friends with ravens and crows, to balance that I don't have a bird yet.

It's crazy to think that I've been following your art since 2011, when you were Teranymphycus or however it's said. So much has changed since those times, I'm proud to have been here this long. :)

Gosh, there's so mcuh emotion in this. The colours you've chosen are so perfect; I love that soft glow of the bird. Also, her expression is so happy. ;_; Those are the parts you always want to remember when you lose an animal - those simple little happy moments. Such gorgeous work. :heart:

I think through the years we will all unfortunately have to deal with losing one we love - human or animal. We must remember though! Those who we love will always be with us in our hearts and in our memories. <3

I know how you feel. *hugs tight* I still think about my dog Monty.  It's really sad to see our companions and friends go. :(
Beautiful artwork, it's a fantastic way to remember her.

Im so sorry. pet deaths are always so striking and i understand completely you are missing her..
my condoleances again, it hurts you, but to this day. you remember her as something that made you move on from whatever what was bothering you.

you are strong and couragous! tera wanted you to be that way and if she were there, she would abselutely root for you like your other birds do now 

away from the mortal world
but never out of your heart
