After reading the Remembrances today, I've been reliving a night I've tried to forget. The poem EmbersDad posted is just what I needed. Thank you.




I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.

I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.

I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,

"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."


I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,

You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached 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 was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.

I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.

I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "it's me."


You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.

I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.

It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.

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 yawning and say

"goodnight, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."


And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,

I'll rush across to greet you and we'll 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.



I just want to say... Here's to all that left us this year! And God bless all of us who are left behind. May the new year be good to us all.

We got home at 2 am the night we let you go. I looked up in the sky and saw a star that outshone all the others. I had never noticed it before. But I have seen it every night since. I can feel you are still with me. I love you.

They are never really gone because they live on in our memories, hearts and dreams.

Thought it was time to share a poem I wrote back in 2002, after losing 3 greys in 8 months in 2001 and early 2002.




A year has gone by

Since I set eyes on you.

Vanished from my life:

You, brilliant star…


Still, I am not alone.

I look into my heart,

And there you are.

The best of memories

Have made a home

In every breath I take.


No second chance, no second-guess.

I hold my hands out to the night,

And as I glance into the past

I see you racing, turning back.


I listen to the distant stars, a whispered breath,

As loved, remembered, scales the walls of death,

And speaks low, in a voice I can't define...


"Everything is fine. You are still mine."
