In Loving Memory | Pet Loss

(In Loving Memory – Pet Loss)

Everywhere I went, you were by my side
my sunshine in every way ..
We walked, played, we traveled
together and snuggled up every day.

Everyone loved you. How could they not?
You were the sweetest dog one could wish for ..
You never got angry or left me alone.
The darling little girl adored.

But now you’re gone, and there’s a hole in my heart.
They tell me in time I’ll heal ..
Thank you, Fur Baby for all you gave
Your love was lasting and real.

You touched my life with your gentle, shy ways.
Your spirit, like soft white snow ..
Spread your furry angel wings, and fly
for now you are free to go.

In Loving Memory | Pet Loss | Cat

Meet You By Rainbow Bridge
(In Loving Memory – Pet Loss – Cat)

I thought that you would live forever
Your death never crossed my mind ..
You were always such a healthy baby
And It hurts to be left behind.

I couldn’t watch you get sick again
Your suffering made me cry ..
The Vets had no solutions
Nothing else that I could try.

I took you to the Vet that day
My eyes were full of tears ..
Not wanting to give up on you
After all our wonderful years.

I held you in my arms that day
My tears soaked through your fur ..
You never struggled or tried to run
You didn’t even purr.

Somehow you knew your time was up,
From pain you would be free ..
You let me hold you tight and cry
As I wished it could be me.

The doctor gave you a special injection
To stop your beating heart ..
I held you close as you went to Heaven
And then I just fell apart.

I lost my very best friend that day
How could I go on?
My life will never be the same
With my little baby gone.

I miss you more than words can say
My heart has a hole inside ..
The day you left to go to Heaven
A part of me just died.

Though time has passed since that day
Yet tears still freely flow ..
I miss you just as much today
As I did some time ago.

I’m sure you’ve made some friends by now
As by Rainbow Bridge you play ..
You’re a healthy little kitty, now
With no pain in your way.

I’ll keep your memory in my heart
Until my days are past ..
Then I’ll meet you at the Rainbow Bridge
Where we can cross at last.

I’m not sure what lies beyond The Bridge,
But it doesn’t matter to me ..
I’ll finally have my best friend back
My tears will turn to glee.

In Loving Memory | Pet Loss Poems

(Pet Loss Poems)

The years, they pass by quickly
we think they’ll never end ..
But time is not always
going to be our greatest friend.

My beautiful Fur Angel
we shared so many years ..
But now you’ve gone home to friends
whilst I am left in tears.

But one day I will join you
But for now you will be missed ..
So run, play in gods garden
you know you can’t resist.

Lend Me A Kitten | Memorial Poems | Pet Loss

Lend Me A Kitten
(Memorial Poems – Pet Loss)

I will lend you a kitten
for a while, God expressed ..
For you to love while he lives
and mourn when he’s at rest.

Maybe for twelve or fourteen years,
or maybe two or three ..
But will you, ’till I call him back
take care of him for me?

He’ll bring his charms to gladden you
and should his stay be brief ..
you’ll always have his memories
as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay
since all from earth return ..
But there are lessons taught below
I want this kitten to learn.

I’ve looked the whole world over
in search of teachers true ..
And from the folk that crowds life’s land
I have chosen you.

Now will you give him all your love
nor think the labor vain ..
Nor hate me when I come to take
my kitten home again.

My heart replied
“My Lord, Thy Will Be Done” ..
For all the joys this kitten brings
the risk of grief I’ll run.

We’ll shelter him with tenderness
we’ll love him while we may ..
And for the happiness we’ve known
forever grateful stay.

But should you call him back
much sooner than we planned ..
We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes
and try to understand.

If, by our love we’ve manages
your wishes to achieve ..
Then in memory of him who we loved
please help us while we grieve.

When our cherished kitten
departs this world of strife ..
Please send yet another
needing soul for us to love all his life.
