A poem to departed dogs

FROM A DOG

If it should be that I grow weak – and pain should keep me from my sleep

Then you must do what must be done – for this last battle can’t be won

You will be sad – I understand – don’t let your grief though stay your hand

For this day more than all the rest -your love and friendship stands the test

We’ve had so many happy years – what is to come can hold no fear.

You don’t want me to suffer so,  when the time comes, please let me go

Take me to where my needs they’ll tend – only stay with me until the end

Hold me firm and speak to me – until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time you will agree  – a kindness that you do for me

Although my tail its last has waved – from pain and suffering I’ve been saved

And please don’t grieve,  it should be you, who must decide this thing to do

We’ve been so close – we two – these years – don’t let your heart hold any tears.

I’ve come back on this blog to maybe add something and on reading this poem little did I know that three years and
four days later my darling Tango would be gone, this poem says it all for him.
