Beautiful.
I have just lost my best friend Bo. He went so suddenly and unexpectedly in my arms that we never got to say goodbye.

I am sure he was on my bed when I awoke and a few minutes ago came and sat by my side. I miss him dreadfully.

Thank you for this.

I Stood By Your Bed

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 every day. 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.

An 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.

run free sweet boy and watch over your family

I am trying to be ready to say goodbye to my Burgher (what else do you name a wiener dog?) this afternoon. I've been quite stoic until my husband left for work this morning...I know it's going to be difficult for my other dogs so I tried to keep things 'normal'. Then I read this poem. Probably the best mistake I ever made. Please know that by you going to the trouble to get permission to repost, you have helped a lot of people. Thank you
