To my beloved

            furry friend and companion…

Bless your precious soul

Your life will not be a story untold

The time we shared

The way you cared

            With tender affection

You will never ever be forgotten

How I long with all my heart

            That we never part

To hold you

And pet you

                        And snuggle together again

Though you were small in stature

You were a giant in love

How can I accept our last


To understand the ways of life and death

To seek peace amidst the grief

To trust Our Creator always knows best

And all things happen for a reason

Bless your precious soul

Your life will not be a story untold

As you make the journey

            Know you are much loved

As I pray that one day

            Our souls will meet again

You will forever be remembered

Godspeed, Little One
