To all of you who have helped us through our difficult time this is for you; 

I Remember
I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying. You found it hard to sleep.

I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.

I was with you at the shops today. Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "It's me."

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.

It's possible for me to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."

You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
and say "Good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."

And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.

I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out... then come home to be with me.

Thanks for the beautiful post.  It reminds me of "A dog named Beau" that EdW showed us a while back.  I hope that they are happy and safe, running and playing, no longer touched by illness and pain from earth.  I have had a little trouble sleeping lately, Tuesday will be 6 months for Gimli and 3 years 6 months for Scruffy.  I miss them so much and I will forever.

Jerry and Gwen, you are such angels. I have seen this before and needed to see it again.  It brought more tears, but they are healing tears.

I miss my Betsy girl most at night as she was such a great little bedmate before she became demented.  So, each night, I say, "Come on, little girl. Get up here next to momma and snuggle in".   Okay, maybe that sounds a little beyond the pale to some, but it works for me.  I can actually sense her spirit in that bed with me.  I feel it is the same way for you and your Peaches.  She is still being your good little girl and staying close to you.

Big hugs from the Texas Hill Country,
Betsy's forever loving mommy

Dear Jerry and Gwen:
Thank you for the beautiful post.  I have read it many times before and it still brings tears to my eyes.  Thank you as well for all your support.  I will continue to count each day until my Journey is up and Christopher is in my arms again.  May God's Angels watch over your Precious Peach Forever.

Big Hugs
Georgeann and Christopher

scruffysmom;mw0263;WooWooWoo & Georgeann,
Glad it helped. Melissa; it doesn't sound a little beyond anything it only shows that unbreakable bond so many of us have with our companions and "Soul Mates". That word in it's self Soul Mates says it all, because they were and always will be a part of us. Georgeann, I only hope that today will perhaps be the first step in helping you deal with pain over your loss.----Jerry in Oklahoma.
