Re: Poems - my favorites

I was reading the posts about members who had lost their dogs, each and everyone made me cry, I only write poetry when i get that bug, it's not something i do all the time.. And something inside me told me to write this down. It might not be good.. But i thought that maybe words from our passed on friends might be comforting.
I don't profess to be a good poet, but i write what i feel.. hope it's not too awful..

A Dogs Life by Wendy Jones (4-12-07)

Running and jumping,
Leaping so high,
Life as a dog,
Is great, itís no lie,
Living your life,
As faithful best friend,
Wagging your tail
That vase just wonít mend.

Fed two meals a day
Fresh water on tap
Belly rubs aplenty
And cuddles on laps,
Licks on faces and
Slobber on knees
Throw that ball mom,
Donít be a tease!

I know I am gone,
From your life this is true,
But these things I know,
They are nothing new,
I am still here,
Please donít cry,
Play with my ball
Iíll lick your face dry.

I know Iím a memory
But I still love you
Gone from your arms
I know this is true
I watch you now
From the rainbow bridge
Iím happy mom
I donít even itch.

I can run, I can jump,
I can leap so high,
Life as a dog,
Is great I canít lie,
I lived my life,
As your best friend,
Just know one day,
Your heart will mend.

A Dogs Message From Heaven

I am sending you this message as I can see you are still having struggles with coping each day since my passing.
You may walk in darkness and your heart is broken with my absence. I haven't left you as you hold me in your heart. Please don't be sad as the light will come shinning through for you. For each day of sunshine, think of it as reminder of me beaming down on you. Be happy that I am no longer in pain from sickness or injury.
I will let you feel my presence if you will let me. Just have faith and let it happen.

Let me tell you what it's like here in this wonderful place. There is no clouds nor dreary rain..Just lot of blue sky and sunshine casted on us from His most gracious presence. There are miles of green grassy fields and meadows of beautiful flowers.
There is no cruel humans to hurt us, just the keepers who have been specially chosen to care for us...

We all get along here large and small.Some of us had a pretty rough life while others were very spoiled. We run and play tag or chase balls. We can be lazy as we want and take long naps. The Creator checks on us each day.

I have met many of your friends furr kids here.
It's been neat to see my brothers and sisters again that came here before me.
We are here waiting here for you when your purpose on Earth is complete. My wish for you is to be happy for me and not sad. It will be the most happiest of reunions and I will lick away all your tears. There will be nothing but good times for ever and ever.

When the time is right and it will come, I want you to take in another furr kid to care for just as you cared for me and protected me from all harm and gave me the security that I needed all those years. They deserve the life I had with you. Try and do that for me.

You were my life and I will always love you for that.
I am not that far away and I will be close to you in spirit and will remain in your heart. Do not think of me when I was at my worst but all the great memories we shared together. I hate to see you cry.
I want to be remembered for all the silly things I did and things we did together.

So my best friend, untill your task on Earth is finished, take care of yourself and help another less fortunate kid to know the love I shared with you and you will be forever rewarded. You will know when the time is right.
Love you Forever,
Your 4 legged soulmate.

Re: Poems

I just came across this one its a tear jerker for sure.


No more lonely cold nights or hearing that I'm bad

No more growling belly from the meals I never had.

No more scorching sunshine with a water bowl that's dry.

No more complaining neighbors about the noise when I cry.

No more hearing "shut up", "get down" or "get out of here"!

No more feeling disliked, only peace is in the air.

Euthanasia is a blessing, though some still can't see

why I was ever born If I weren't meant to be.

My last day of living was the best I ever had.

Someone held me very close, I could see she was very sad.

I kissed the lady's face, and she hugged me as she cried.

I wagged my tail to thank her, then I closed my eyes and died.

Re: Poems

In my feelings of pain and devastation at losing my beloved Kayla, someone pointed out a part of a song that means so much to me right now. It's the country song by Garth Brooks. The name of the song is "The Dance" and part of it is

<span style="color: #3333FF">"I could have missed the pain but I would've had to miss the dance". </span>

Re: Poems


If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep
Then you must do what must be done
For this, the last battle, can't be won

You will be sad - I understand
Don't let your grief then stay your hand
For this day, more than all the rest
Your love and friendship, stand the test

We've had so many happy years
What is to come can hold no fears
You'd not want me to suffer so
When the time comes, please let me go

Take me where my needs they'll tend
Only stay with me until the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see

I know in time you too, will see
It is a kindness you do for me
Although my tail it's last has waved
From pain and suffering I have been saved

Don't grieve that it should be you
Who must decide this thing to do
We've been so close, we two these years
Don't let your heart hold any tears

Re: Poems - my favorites

I found this in my local paper recently. It was submitted by a pastor who's faithful dog had just passed. A member of his church had given it to him. It may be known to others but for me at least the author is unknown.

I explained to St. Peter
I'd rather stay here,
Outside the Pearly Gate.

I won't be a nuisance,
I won't even bark,
I'll be very patient and wait.

I'll be here,
Chewing on a celestial bone,
No matter how long you may be.
I'd miss you so much,
If I went in alone.
It wouldn't be heaven for me.

"My Old Friend"

My old friend, I recall
The times we had hanging on my wall
I wouldn't trade them for gold
Cause they laugh and they cry me
Somehow sanctify me
They're woven in the stories I have told
And tell again

My old friend, I apologize
For the years that have passed
Since the last time you and I
Dusted off those memories
But the running and the races
The people and the places
There's always somewhere else I had to be
Time gets slim, my old friend

Don't know why, don't know why
Don't know why, don't know why

My old friend, this song's for you
Cause a few simple verses
Was the least that I could do
To tell the world that you were here
Cause the love and the laughter
Will live on long after
All of the sadness and the tears
We'll meet again, my old friend

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye

My old friend, my old friend
Goodbye, goodbye

this is a very moving song we played at my brother's dog funeral

Re: Poems - my favorites

I wrote this for my GSD Bullet when I found out that he would be leaving us soon. I read it to him as he peacefully drifted off and away from us. I purposely wrote it so that it appears as if it could be the thoughts of myself or Bullet. I would invite any of you to use it for your beloved friends. I have a copy of it next to his pictures. He has pictures posted in a recent thread on the Health Issues.

Dear Friend

Time and fate dictate that our paths must part now,
But I would like to leave you with these words and thoughts

I have enjoyed our time together, you have been a faithful companion and protector. I can only hope that you have enjoyed your time as much with me

I have learned much from you to include trust and unconditional love. I can only hope that you have learned as much from me

Your unselfish acts of kindness will not be forgotten, you took time out of your day to play ball with me, and to accompany me on beautiful walks through the neighborhood, I hope that you enjoyed this as much as me.

I was always so proud to be seen with you, and I hope you were as proud to be seen with me

We knew when we met that our time together would not last for eternity on this earth, but our memories will

You have fulfilled all of your obligations to me, and I can only hope that I have fulfilled my obligations towards you

It is hard to end our time together, but time and fate dictate that it must be this way

Our separation will be painful and we will take a small part from eath other on our new journeys, but our bond will not be broken

It has been an honor and a pleasure to have shared my life with you, and I hope that your life with me has been just as rewarding

Thank you for protecting our family and our home while we slept, your strength and power kept evil away

Be righteous in all of your future journeys, we will one day meet again in God's Heaven so that we may pick up where we were in this world

Love always,
Your friend
