I received these beautiful words from my Brother-of-the-Heart, Rio, his sister Lexey and beloved mom, Pat. These are the words I say to my mom and I thank her for giving me the one final gift that let me leave knowing I was loved beyond words and with the dignity I deserved.
From friend to friend
You're giving me a special gift.
So sorrowfully endowed.
And through these last few cherished days
Your courage makes me proud.
But really, love is knowing
When your best friend is in pain,
And understanding earthly acts
will only be in vain.
So looking deep into your eyes
Beyond, into your soul,
I see in you the magic,that will
Once more make me whole.
The Strength that you possess,
Is why I look to you today,
To do this thing that must be done,
For it's the only way.
That strength is why I've followed you
And chose you as my friend.
And why I've loved you all these years
My partner til the end!
Please understand just what this gift
You are giving means to me.
It gives me back the strength I've lost.
And all my dignity.
You take a stand on my behalf
For that is what friends do.
You know that what you do is right.
For I believe it too.
So one last time, I breath your scent
And through your hand I feel,
The courage that is with you
to now grant me this appeal!!
Cut the leash that holds me here.
Dear friend, and let me run.
Once a strong and steady dog,
My pain and struggle done.
And don't despair my passing
For I won't be far away
Forever here within your heart
And memory I will stay
I'll be there watching over you,
Your ever faithful friend
And in your memories I will run
A young dog once again.
