Waldron, Ar. USA
You have been a loyal friend for many years
But now it is time to lick God's tears.
Your stout solid frame
will now play an angel game.
Those beautiful brown eyes
will now look down from the skies.
When you were feeling blue
my heart would be oh so sad too.
You loved my kids like they were your own
but know you have a new place to call home.
They shall miss you but remember you always,
especially on those quiet, long, lonely days.
Though your time here was much to short,
we know now you share a higher court.
Now that your pain is no more
forgive me please for this chore.
To let you live like this would have been unkind,
but the thought of this will linger in my mind.
If giving you this love and peace I have is wrong,
then I will suffer the price until my time comes along.
Farewell to you my courageous friend and remember me well.
The memories I have of you, to all I shall tell.
This poem is dedicated to my dog Elvira our little mistress of the dark. She had a good
heart and did not deserve to have to be put to sleep so young, but due to an inherited
skin disorder I had no choice. Thanks for
this forum and your time
