When the Time Comes

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this--the last battle--can't be won.

You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.

We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.

Take me to where my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness that you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.

Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close--we two--these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.

Just one thing i would ask of you
Dont waste the love you gave
Rescue one who needs my place
thats another you can save

Hi i have this poem on the front off my girls cremation certificate , i cried so hard when it came thru the letterbox i didnt get thru the first two lines before i cried as i lost my girl to hip dysplasia at 2 yr old and the vet said she would off been in tremendous pain , i felt bad that i never knew it was only her hip clicking when walking that made me get her checked and xrayed , we started watching her and realised she was showing signs off pain it just we thought she was been cute as we never believed she had a problem till the diagnosis i really do wish i had known earlier as i would never allowed her to go through the pain she did , even the painkillers she was prescribed didnt help her and i decided she had suffered enough love her with all my heart
