In Memory Of
Susannah Royal Girl.
She had a lovable temperament, very affectionate, very intelligent and stuck with you when walking without a leash.
We lost our beloved Golden Retriever October 7, 2004
She was poisoned by a neighbor accidentally
We will never forget her...
A Most Gentle Soul
I stood by your bed last
night, I came to have a peep.
I could see you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"Itís me, I havenít left you. Iím well, Iím fine, Iím here."
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times your hands reach down to me.
I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "itís me."
You look so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I am standing there.
Itís possible for me, to be so near you every day.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over... I smile and watch you yawn
and say "goodnight, God bless, Iíll see you in the morning."
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
Iíll rush across to greet you and weíll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out...then come home to be with me.
Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened
