My Sweet Forever Pet

There's something missing in my home,

I feel it day and night.

I know it will take time and strength

Before things feel quite right.

But just for now, I need to mourn,

My heart needs to mend,

Though some may say it's "just a pet"

I know I've lost a friend

You've brought such laughter to my home,

and richness to my days.....

A constant friend through joy or loss,

With gentle, loving ways.

Companion, pal, and confidante,

A friend I won't forget,

You'll live for always in my heart,

My sweet forever pet...

That's beautiful. I want to take it and post it at the office where I work. I get laughed at when I have to miss half a day or worry calling the vet over my "just a pet"...to me they are sons and daughters...and friends. So much more than "just a pet".

Beautiful poem to say the least.It touches the heart and soul.When grief gets me down thinking about Howie I listen to John Lennon sing LET IT BE and listen to that little voice that says ...Just believe. Thank you so much for sharing that.

How true the words are of this beautiful poem. Our "pets" are family, friends, and companions to us and our hearts are broken at their passing. Thank you for sharing this with us.
