You were a bright light for me
My shining star
Now the light has gone out
How will I go on!
I loved you in life and
I love you in death
Such sadness has swept me
Away like a tidal wave
Carried me to another place
And now, someone else remains to grieve
Because my pain is indescribable.
You were my strength
My brave little soldier
And now, the strength has gone from me too
I miss you, so desperately.
You were everything to me
You gave me so much joy
And now, the angels are the lucky ones
As they watch you romp on heaven's greens.
But I too was lucky once,
She loved me with all her heart
We bonded in life, and now in death
I'll carry her wherever I go.

"WHEN ONLY THE LOVE REMAINS:THE PAIN OF PET LOSS"
