it has now been a full month since we lost our 6 yr old golden girl Sigma. Here is a beautiful poem I found. Gets me going every time. :(

If it should be that I grow weak...

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 control your hand,

For this day more than all the rest,

Your love for me must stand the test.

We've had so many happy years,

What is to come can hold no fears,

You'd not want me to suffer so,

The time as come, please let me go.

Take me where my needs they'll tend,

And please stay with me until the end,

Hold me firm & speak to me,

Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time that you will see,

The kindness that you do for me,

Although my tail its last has waved,

From pain and suffering I've been saved.

Please do not grieve it must be you,

Who has this painful thing to do,

We've been so close for all these years,

Don't let your heart hold back your tears.

Thank you for posting this beautiful poem. I have a few that I really like. Those two are my favorites.


I Stood By Your Bed

I stood by your bed last night; I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, you found it hard to sleep.

I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times your hands reached out to me.

I was with you at the shops today; your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels; I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today; you tend it with such care.
I want to reassure you that I'm not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you; I smiled and said "It's me."

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know that I was standing there.

It's possible for me to be so near you every day.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."

You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is almost over... I smile and watch you yawning
And say, "Goodnight, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."

And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.

I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out... then come home to be with me.

They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

I lost my golden, Holly a week and a half ago and it doesn't seem to be getting easier. These poems keep getting me, I Can read them over and over and still can't control the tears. Losing them this youn just isn't fair, I would have never thought in a million years we'd be without her right now. I'm sure you feel the exact same way

Sorry very sorry for your loss. I lost my best friend two months ago yesterday. It doesn't go away but as time passes you will smile at memories more then you will cry. Don't get me wrong I cry still almost daily.

I am so sorry for your loss. Everyday is getting a little easier to smile, but then you just have lthose moments. Holly was my best friend, I'm 23 and honesty I'd rather sit home every weekend and be with her than go out and party. I can say that she meant more to me than most people in my life. I realized over the course of the past week and a half how many inconsiderate people, who I thought were friends, are out there. I talk to my boyfriend about it and he said Something. "I guess we have to realize that to some people, pets r just pets. To us they're family. Not everyone will understand that, and u kno what, thats unfortunate for them to not b able to have that relationship." it is extremely unfortunate because if people gave it a chance and experienced the love Holly or any golden gives they'd be forever grateful. What I would do to have her back with me.

I know exactly how you feel. It's been almost three weeks since we lost our girl Sandy and I'm still waiting for when it's going to be easier. We lost a huge part of our family and we miss her so badly. I understand your pain.
Hugs.
