Good Night My Sweet Angel

Reno (June 12, 2000 - November 19, 2012)

May I go now? Do you think the time is right?
May I say good-bye to pain filled days and endless sleepless nights?
Iíve lived my life and done my best an example tried to be
So can I take that step beyond and set my spirit free?
I didnít want to go at first, I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now to a warm and loving light.
I want to go, I really do, itís difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can to live just one more day.
To give you time to care for me and share your love and fears
I know youíre sad and afraid because I see your tears.
Iíll not be far, I promise that and hope youíll always know
That my spirit will be close to you wherever you may go.
Thank you so for loving me, you know I love you too.
Thatís why itís hard to say good-bye and end this life with you.
So hold me now just one more time and let me hear you say,
Because you care so much for me youíll let me go today.

Godspeed good boy. You are so loved and will be so missed.

That was a beautiful poem.

So sorry for the loss of your special boy Reno. He will never be forgotten on this forum - a true inspiration who fought bravely until the end. Run free sweet boy! Sending lots of hugs to your family and brothers at this difficult time.
