A Void Left Behind
A house feeling empty
Now that you’re gone
No more barks filling up the room
Or watching you being cute as you yawn
It was a delight to have you in our lives
And in our memories, you will live on.
A Good Dog Never Dies
“A good dog never dies, he always stays,
he walks besides you on crisp autumn days
when frost is on the fields and winter’s drawing near,
his head within our hand in his old way.”
I lost a treasured friend today
The little dog who used to lay
Her gentle head upon my knee
And shared her silent thoughts with me.
She’ll come no longer to my call
Retrieve no more her favourite ball
A voice far greater than my own
Has called her to his golden throne.
Although my eyes are filled with tears
I thank him for the happy years
He let her spend down here with me
And for her love and loyalty.
When it is time for me to go
And join her there, this much I know
I shall not fear the transient dark
For she will greet me with a bark.
Losing a dog leaves a hole in your heart,
You simply just wait for your life to restart.
The hurt is so deep that you wonder just how,
You’ll ever recover from pain you feel now.
But time is a blessing and memories are gold.
The years that you loved her and watched her grow old,
Are gifts that she leaves you to treasure and then,
One day you’ll see her and love her again.
Missing Your Presence
Who knew a soulmate
Could be wrapped in fur
You were truly a best friend to me
I will miss you in the morning
Being the first that I’d see
I will miss our long walks
And our daily talks
Although I was the one yapping away
By my side is where you’d always stay
With my hand patting your head
It felt like you could hear every word I said
I will miss everything about you
How you would jump up against me
And suddenly you were so tall
Or your excited eyes waiting to catch the ball
I will miss this and everything in between
I hope you somehow knew
You were truly my all.
Four Feet by Rudyard Kipling
I have done mostly what most men do,
And pushed it out of my mind;
But I can’t forget, if I wanted to,
Four-Feet trotting behind.
Day after day, the whole day through..
Wherever my road inclined..
Four-feet said, “I am coming with you!”
And trotted along behind.
Now I must go by some other round,
Which I shall never find..
Somewhere that does not carry the sound
Of Four-Feet trotting behind.
Tribute to a Best Friend
Sunlight streams through the window pane
unto a spot on the floor….
then I remember,
it’s where you used to lie,
but now you are no more.
Our feet walk down a hall of carpet,
and muted echoes sound….
then I remember,
It’s where your paws would joyously abound.
A voice is heard along the road,
and up beyond the hill,
then I remember it can’t be yours….
your golden voice is still.
But I’ll take that vacant spot of floor
and empty muted hall
and lay them with the absent voice
and unused dish along the wall.
I’ll wrap these treasured memorials
in a blanket of my love
and keep them for my best friend
until we meet above.
You’re Coming Here To Me
When you’re walking down the street,
With me on your mind.
I’m walking in your footsteps,
Only half a step behind.
And when it’s time for you to go,
From that body to be free.
Remember, you’re not going,
You’re coming here, to me.
A Prayer for Animals
Hear our humble prayer,
for our friends, the animals,
especially for those who are suffering;
for any that are lost or deserted
or frightened or hungry.
We entreat for them all
Thy mercy and pity,
and for those who deal with them,
we ask a heart of compassion
and gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves,
to be true friends to animals
and so to share
of the merciful.
You lived your nine lives here with me
my loyal, loving friend,
Then God took you up to Paradise
to live life number ten.
I’ll bet you’re peacefully lying
upon an angel’s lap.
Purring there, without a care
having a heavenly nap.
I’ll miss you for a little while,
but our friendship will not end.
Time will pass, and then at last
you’ll be on my lap again.
