Last night

Discussion in 'Memorials' started by Raven and Damon, Sep 5, 2010.

  1. I found this poem while surfing on the net. I touched my heart and jerked alot of tears. Then I saw this forum and thought that perhaps this would bring a small amount of peace to some very broken hearts. They never live long enough.. My Mom use to tell me that it is because they love so unconditionally. That they can't live as long less the world and the pain make them bitter. So, we get them here for a little while and then they are taken but stay at our side.. She always told me that when we lost a fur baby. I hope this will bring someone a soft smile or a small amount of peace.

    Last Night

    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 everyday.

    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.

    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...then come home to be with me.

    GEEEZUS Raven! U scared me to death! I seen the title of the thread and the fact it was in Memorials and I thought something happened to Damon! [​IMG]

    I didn't read the poem because I've been especially missing my RIP girl Storm and I know it will cause me to cry.

    Here is one a friend sent me when I lost my beloved Jessie, still tugs at my heart strings :sorrow:

    He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds;
    my other ears that hear above the winds.
    He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea.
    He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being;
    by the way he rests against my leg;
    by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile;
    by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him.
    (I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.)
    When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive.
    When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile.
    When I am happy, he is joy unbounded.
    When I am a fool, he ignores it. When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another man.
    With him, I am all-powerful.
    He is loyalty itself.
    He has taught me the meaning of devotion.
    With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant.
    His head on my knee can heal my human hurts.
    His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things.
    He has promised to wait for me... whenever... wherever - in case I need him.
    And I expect I will - as I
    always have.
    He is my dog.
