Today loyal friend they put you to sleep
So I sit all alone and silently weep
No more could be done your life to extend
You fought the brave fight right to the end.

I recall how I rescued you from the pound
Brought you home watched you run around
Your crazy antics your funny ways
Lifted my spirits on my darkest days.

They tell me that I'll soon forget
Go out they say and find a new pet
At the moment I know you can't be replaced
The emotions are raw in my heart you're encased.

I buried your ashes under the tree
Where you loved to dig and hide bones from me
This pain I carry will someday end
Till it happens I'll grieve for my little friend.

Rod Moffat commented: Sometimes for us who like to write with rhyme it can be challenging to find the words that truly reflect our feelings. Well done, it is easy to recognize the depth of feelings you have for your pet. Grieving may diminish but the loving memories will always stay.

So many who have dogs pass away say they could never replace them , so strong was the bond. I hope that you may one day find a wonderful new furry companion......
