I watched you close your eyes,
I felt you slip away,
Although you meant the world to me,
I couldn’t make you stay.
Someone saw you getting tired,
A cure, not meant to be,
They lifted you up in their arms,
They whispered “Come with me.”
Although you departed from this life,
Your memories won’t fade away,
You took a piece of us with you,
When you left today.
Goodbye my sweet companion,
It’s time for you to run free,
But always I’ll remember you,
And the joy you gave to me.
I will be forever grateful,
To have had you in my life,
But for now my little darling,
It’s time to close your eyes.
To rid yourself of pain and fear,
Remember how we loved you dear.
Sleep with the angels, sweet one,
It’s time to rest your head.
Dream only of the nicest things,
As we lay you in your bed.
Look down from us from time to time,
Remember how you made us smile,
Even though we now feel sad,
We’ll always be your Mum and Dad.
We loved him so much and it has broken our hearts to say goodbye, in particular Patch who has lost his best friend. We have adopted two young pups by the name of Hope and Gizmo, they are beautiful boys and have such sweet and gentle temperaments.
I will post photos soon
