This ones for Meg. With me 2 weeks ago - bright, charming and a darling to have here.So its heart breaking to have her owners ring today to say they lost her to cancer on Monday. Barely out of puppy hood with the makings of a truly good dog.
Gone....but not forgotten.
I lost a treasured friend today
The little dog who used to lay
Her gentle head upon my knee
And share her silent thoughts with me...
She'll come no longer to my call
Retrieve no more her favorite ball
A voice far greater than my own
Has called her to His golden throne.
Although my eyes are filled with tears,
I thank Him for the happy years
He let her spend down here with me
And for her love and loyalty.
When it is time for me to go
And join her there, this much I know...
I shall not fear the transient dark
For she will greet me with her bark.
