    Great poem - I don't think there are many things worst than losing a pet.I have been through it four times and it never gets any easier. My cousin recently lost their dog Simba due to a bad reation to a medication for bad joints. It was initially prescribed for their other dog Holly as she had bad arthtitis - the Vet said it should be fine to give to Simba too - unfortunatey Simba suffered kidney/liver failure shortly after taking it and had to be put to sleep. There is no concrete evidence that the meds were to blame - but on the back of the medication it said that in very very very rare situations it can cause liver failure - it does seem a massive coincidence - my cousin was simply unable to even mention Simba's name! He was just so devastated - if there is a lesson to learn - read the side effects and speak to the Vet if you are unsure.

    I know your pain
    my cat was knocked over by a car about 6 weeks ago and left to die at the side of the road even thou there's 2 vets 30 seconds down the road.
    It makes me so mad that no one stopped to help him.
    He was only about 4 years old

    That was such a beautiful poem, and I now sit here drenching my clothes in silent tears. My beautiful border collie, Tess, had to be helped on her way to Rainbow Bridge on March 3rd this year. She was suffering from Kidney failure and at the age of nearly 16 years she was ready to leave the limitations of her body. It still saddens me that she is no longer with me though, and I miss her greatly - but I would rather miss her than never to have known her.

    I don't know what there is after life, but I like to think that she is still alive in my heart and in my memories, if not actually physically.

    Thank you for the poem.

    what a lovely poem -thank you for posting - despite the fact that it made me cry-lots!!

    We lost our much loved Rottie recently - he was a rescue and that made him all the more special, even though we had him for only a short precious time. I actually had a portrait of his face tattoed on my thigh as I know he will ALWAYS be by my side. Two weeks ago we took on another rescue Rott - a pup and he is just delightful. It helps having him around- he will never replace the one we lost - but we love him in honour of our big lad!

    That is such a beautiful poem!! I run a website that creates memorial websites for much loved and missed pets, but your poem is the most beautiful and touching that I've heard!

    Thank you for this poem. I am literally in tears; we lost my dog last night, he was thirteen, I just don't know what to do without him.

    A lovely poem. It's all so raw for me (just hours after a very rapid decline), but having lost a pet as a child, I know the pain never really leaves, you just learn to move on.

    I do believe that the spirit lives on and hope we all get to feel the presence of our loved ones at some time, I'm sure they'll still be around, albeit from the other side.
