    I'M STILL HERE

    I stood beside your bed last night,I came to have a peek
    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 reassure you, That I'm not lying there

    I walked with you toward 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 you 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, And then come home to be with me

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss.
    That is a beautiful poem and reminds me of my Yorkie, Pepper, who I lost 4 yrs ago aged 16yrs. I have felt her soft fur on my arm many times since and I know she is here with me, they stay in your heart forever. xx
