This brought tears to my eyes too. Very nice John.At least you were with her to the end. I'm sure she knew it as she went in peace and not in fear. This is a good poem I read after having to put my best friend down, maybe you'll like it.
With heavy hearts; and a tear in our eyesafter all these years; we must say goodbyePlease understand; we've done all we couldif there was anything we could do; you know we wouldI'm sitting right here; gently rub your earswhile I talk to you softly; trying to hold back the tearsThe memories you gave us; we'll never forgetespecially the ones; of the day we all metOne last hug; and one last kissyou have no idea; how much you'll be missedTo look into your eyes; this one last timeyou tell me it's ok; you know it's your timeClose your eyes now; and go to sleepwe'll pray to the Lord; you're soul he'll keepGo in peace now; our good friendwe'll stay right here with you; until the endDream of that special day and timewhen we'll meet at the Bridge; and all will be fineWe'll run and play; side by sidewith a soft warm feeling; deep down insideYour memory will live on; in each one of usyou'll always be number 1; to all of usHave a safe journey; through the nightI promise when you awake; you'll be in God's lightSo with heavy hearts; and tears in our eyesjust for now my friend; we say goodbyeAnd I guess I'll throw up a quick pic of my best friend as I know he and Cheyenne are digging holes together up in heaven.
