Saying Goodbye....

A Letter from Your Pet in Heaven:


To my dearest family,

some things I'd like to say.

But first of all, to let you know,

that I arrived okay.


I'm writing this from the Bridge.

Here I dwell with God above.

Here there's no more tears of sadness

Here is just eternal love.


Please do not be unhappy

just because I'm out of sight.

Remember that I am with you

every morning, noon and night.


That day I had to leave you

when my life on earth was through,

God picked me up and hugged me

and He said, "I welcome you.


It's good to have you back again,

you were missed while you were gone.

As for your dearest family,

They'll be here later on."


God gave me a list of things,

that he wished for me to do.

And foremost on the list,

was to watch and care for you.


And when you lie in bed at night

the day's chores put to flight,

God and I are closest to you...

in the middle of the night.


When you think of my life on earth,

and all those loving years,

because you are only human,

they are bound to bring you tears.


But do not be afraid to cry:

it does relieve the pain.

Remember there would be no flowers,

unless there was some rain.


I wish that I could tell you

all that God has planned.

If I were to tell you,

you wouldn't understand.


But one thing is for certain,

though my life on earth is o'er.

I'm closer to you now,

than I ever was before.


There are rocky roads ahead of you

and many hills to climb;

But together we can do it

by taking one day at a time.


It was always my philosophy

and I'd like it for you too;

That as you give unto the world,

the world will give to you.


If you can help somebody

who's in sorrow and pain;

Then you can say to God at night...

"My day was not in vain."


And now I am contented...

that my life was worthwhile.

Knowing as I passed along

I made somebody smile.


God says: "If you meet somebody

who is sad and feeling low;

Just lend a hand to pick him up,

as on your way you go.


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."

One more....




You're giving me a special gift,

So sorrowfully endowed,

And through these last few cherished days,

Your courage makes me proud.


But really, love is knowing

When your best friend is in pain,

And understanding earthly acts

Will only be in vain.


So looking deep into your eyes,

Beyond, into your soul,

I see in you the magic, that will

Once more make me whole.


The strength that you possess,

Is why I look to you today,

To do this thing that must be done,

For it's the only way.


That strength is why I've followed you,

And chose you as my friend,

And why I've loved you all these years...

My partner 'til the end.


Please, understand just what this gift,

You're giving, means to me,

It gives me back the strength I've lost,

And all my dignity.


You take a stand on my behalf,

For that is what friends do.

And know that what you do is right,

For I believe it too.


So one last time, I breathe your scent,

And through your hand I feel,

The courage that's within you,

To now grant me this appeal.


Cut the leash that holds me here,

Dear friend, and let me run,

Once more a strong and steady dog,

My pain and struggle done.


And don't despair my passing,

For I won't be far away,

Forever here, within your heart,

And memory I'll stay.


I'll be there watching over you,

Your ever faithful friend,

And in your memories I'll run,

...a young dog once again.


In Memory of Asta, Feb. 1997

My Angel Skye, how I miss your pretty smile and funny ROO ROO.


I love you so much baby dog and miss you so very much.


Be a good girl until we can snuggle together again.


I am right here loving you every minute of every day.


Don't eat all the marshmellows either!


Love, Mommy
