Our eyes met when you were young.
I saw hurt,but also hope.
When I picked you up,you were scared,but relieved.
At home,I introduced you to the world,one flower at a time.
You were so beautiful and innocent.
As we grew to know one another,we learned about ourselves,one day at a time.
In happy times or sad,we were there for each other.
You gave me hope in a world that can be lonely and harsh.
We shared life and lived it.
Growing older,you put more trust in me,as I cried knowing the inevitable.
Your strength subsided only from the pain that your body endured.
You marched to death's door with dignity and grace.
I comforted you in your last breath.
I loved you and love you forever,
my best friend in life that God blessed me with...
You have your legs and wings in heaven now,my four legged friend.
I hope to see you soon...
