My best friend
You never growled at us. You were great with the children. You were always so pleased to see us. Your tail never stopped wagging even when you found it so hard to walk. You were an angel and we will miss you so much. Love Mummy, Daddy, Rebecca and Ellie x x x
First night at home
I Stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep. I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep. I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear, "it's me, I haven't left you, I'm fine, I'm here." I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea, You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me. I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore. I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more. I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care. I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there. I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your keys. I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "it's me." You looked tired, and sank into the chair. I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there. It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday. To say to you with certainty, " I never went away." You sat there very quietly, then smile, I think you knew... in the stillness of that evening, I was close to you. The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning and say "goodnight, God bless, I'll see you in the morning." And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide, I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side. I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see. Be patient, live your journey out... then come home to be with me.....
