So this is where we part, My Friend,
And you’ll run on, around the bend,
Gone from sight, but not from mind,
New pleasures there you’ll surely find.
I will go on; I’ll find the strength,
Life measures quality, not its length,
One long embrace, before you leave,
Share one last look, before I grieve.
There may be others, that much is true,
But they be they, and they aren’t you,
And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought,
Will remember well, all you’ve taught.
Your place I’ll hold, you will be missed,
The fur I stroked, the nose I kissed,
And as you journey, to your final rest,
Take this with you, Maddie…
I loved you best.
