I STOOD BY YOUR BED LAST NIGHT

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 down 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 everyday.
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 over... I smile and watch you yawning
And say "good-night, 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.

My Tail of Devotion for Kelsey

One year ago today my dear sweet Kelsey passed onto Rainbow Bridge. She was losing her battle to the bladder cancer demons that invaded her small body. The night before we found out the cancer had spread to her back thigh bone. The oncologist gave us two choices. We could 'drug her up' so she would be pain free and that would last about a week or we could let her go. She had given me unconditional love for 11 years. It was my turn to repay and allow her a peaceful escape from the pain she suffering.

They say time heals all wounds. The wound of her passing is still very deep. To this day I wear an eternity bracelet with a few of her ashes in it everyday. She had a way of making my worst day into something happy by always greeting me at the door with her Kelsey dance and kisses. By wearing her bracelet I feel as she is always still with me, watching over me and giving me peace.

My dear sweet baby I miss you terribly. I am sure you are at the Bridge chasing kitties and welcoming and entertaining all of the new pups at the rainbow while the wait for their special humans to join them. May you have found the joy at Rainbow Bridget that you always have given everyone you met my darling baby girl.
