From Your Pets in Heaven
To have loved and then said farewell is better than to
have never loved at all.
For all of the times that you have stooped
my head, fed me my favorite treat and returned
the love that I so
unconditionally gave to you......
for the care that you gave to me so
unselfishly... for all of these things
I am grateful and thankful. I ask that you
not grieve for the loss but rejoice in the
fact that we lived,
loved and touched each other's lives.
My life was fuller because you were there --
not as a master/owner, but as my friend.
Today I am as I was in my youth. The grass is always
green,butterflies flit among the flowers and the sun
shines gently down upon all of God's creatures.
I can run, jump, play and do all of the things that
I did in my youth. There is no sickness, no aching
joints, no regrets and no aging.
We await the arrival of our lifelong
companions and know that
togetherness is forever. Companions such as
you are so rare and unique.
Don't hold the love that you have within
yourself; give it to another like me and then
I will live forever.
For love never really dies, and you are
loved and missed as surely as we are.
