From One Friend To Another
(In Loving Memory – Pet Loss – Dog Poems)
A special gift you’re giving me
The one that you have vowed ..
And through these last few precious days
Your courage makes me proud.
But really, love is knowing
When your best friend is in pain ..
And understanding earthly acts
Will only be in vain.
So looking deep into your eyes
Beyond, into your soul ..
I see in you the magic, that will
Once more make me whole.
The strength that you possess
Is why I look to you today ..
You must do what must be done
For it’s the only way.
That strength is why I’ve followed you
And chose you as my friend ..
And why I’ve loved you all these years
My partner ’til the end.
Please, understand just what this gift
You’re giving, means to me ..
It gives me back the strength I’ve lost
And all my dignity.
You take a stand on my behalf
For that is what friends do ..
And know that what you do is right
For I believe it too.
So one last time, I breathe your scent
And through your hand I feel ..
The courage that’s within you
To now grant me this appeal.
Cut the leash that holds me here
Dear friend, and let me run ..
Once more a strong and steady dog
My pain and struggle done.
And don’t despair my passing
For I won’t be far away ..
Forever here, within your heart
And memory I’ll stay.
I’ll be there watching over you
Your ever faithful friend ..
And in your memories I’ll run
a young dog once again.
