Get a Kleenex
This holds so much truth
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 this to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, 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 am not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house,
as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "it's me."
You looked so very tired, and sank into a 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 smiled, I think you knew.
That in the stillness of that evening, I was very 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.
Love that- makes me cry every time-but its very neat....
Just lovely and so true.
Thank you for sharing.
First time I've seen that one. Thank you.
Thank you for sharing....... my heart is pounding, mind wandering - thinking, tears flowing. Dogs are such wonderful creatures.
Thank you for posting that. We just had to put down our first one on the 8th. It was a hard decision, but as you know it needs to be done. I hope with all my heart Candlewoods Blue Winged Teal will be waiting for me when it is my turn and in the mean time, I hope St. Peter is a good shot so she has alot of birds to retrieve.
Thy righteousness is as mountains of God, Thy judgements are a great deep. Man and beast Thou savest, O Jehovah.
I think they are over there waiting for us.
Thanks, we all need to hear this!
