Weep not for me, my trusted friend, for I leave you with the joy of our time together tucked deep in my heart.


I carry your warm smile that greeted me every day, that you tried to hide when I ran through the house with my toys, or hid your gloves under the sofa. The smile that came across your face when you first saw me and picked me up. That smile will never fade.


I carry your laughter when I did something silly; when we raced across the fields playing in the high grass, the sunshine warming our faces; when I scooted across the floor chasing my ball.


I carry your tears when you were sad and I curled up on your lap in comfort; when I licked those tears from your face to help you heal.


I carry your joy when we played with my toys, when I sat and came and rolled over for the first time. The joy when you tapped your chest and I jumped in your arms. The joy I saw on your face every night when you came home.


I carry the love in your heart when I grew stiff and old, when my eyesight failed and you helped me find my way. The love that carried me gently to your bed to lay by your side throughout the night. The love that kept me safe and warm on cold winter nights. The love that nursed me when I was sick.


I carry the look in your eyes that touched my soul with tenderness.


I carry the warmth in your heart, for I know you gave yours to me, as I did mine to you.


I understand.

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.
