A tribute to a beloved dog

Loving You, A Poem From Lucy To Papa

I remember our last moment, right before you said goodbye, I looked at you, and you looked at me while tears filled up in your eyes.

I know it’s hard to understand and I would have loved to stay, But at some point, our name is called, and mine was called today.

I’m grateful for your loving care until the very end, Your choice, however difficult, proves that you were heaven-sent.

For nothing speaks of tender love and sacrifice to me, Than one who’s heart was crumbling and yet still set me free.

The human term of “putting me down” is wrong, it is releasing, You gave me the most precious gift when you granted me peace.

So I will wait at the Rainbow Bridge until we meet again, And then it’s licks and tail wags for you, the best of friends.

I Love You, Papa,

    That was so beautiful and while the tears are streaming down my face, a peace came over me while I read your poem, as I to are grieving the loss of my precious Mindy who went to join her pals in God’s special place on the 13- 06- 2020. Although I am struggling with her loss I know that I am not alone in grief and that there is help for us Fur baby family members. Thank you Lucy and bless you .

    Such a beautiful poem. I lost my beautiful Lab of 13 years today (24/05/20) Sadly we had to say good bye and I am struggling to cope. This Poem has made it that little bit easier.
