In Loving Memory of Dear Friends Lost

chickadeedeedee(z 6-7 ish Ohio)February 25, 2007

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 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 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,

in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning and say "good-night,

God bless you Mom and Dad, 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.

Gee Chicka.... it's been almost a year and I still so miss my Sasha... way to make me cry...

Next time I think of her I'm just going to stroke her head right in mid-air.

*Thanks.* *sniffle.*

Lordy Lordy, Chicka dee dee dee you brought a tear to my eyes too.
Our little dog is 18 years old, losing her sight and quite deaf. But she keeps on going, with a little help from us, when she cannot make it up on the setee or the patio deck stairs, on her own steam.
The though of not having her around is hard to deal with for sure. But it seems to be coming closer all the time.

Wow C3D:

I had to reach for the Scotties too. Had a reading by a psychic in December and she asked me if I lost a big yellow dog recently, because he is still with me all the time. That would be my Kuvasz, Grieco.

After reading your poem............wow!

Thanks for sharing

Yep! IMO, knowing that the end is near was even harder to deal with than the rest.
