(When I lost Benny recently, I was directed to a web site called www.petloss.com which is a helpful web site if anyone ever loses a pet and wants to share their pain with others or simply look for some comfort when nothing else seems to help)
I found this poem below.


I Haven’t Left At All

I saw you gently weeping as you looked through photographs
You paused for just a moment at one that made you laugh.
But as you turned more pages the tears began to flow
You whispered that you missed me but I want you to know;
I softly licked those stinging tears that down your cheeks did fall
I want to help you understand I haven’t left at all.

On those days that you are overcome with sorrow, pain and grief
I rest my head upon your leg to offer some relief.
When you take our walking path I’ve seen you turn around
Because I know you surely heard my paws upon the ground.

At night while you are sleeping I snuggle at your side
You stroke my fur as you touch that place where I used to lie.
You said it’s just your heart playing tricks upon your mind
But rest assured I’m really there, my spirit’s left behind.

I know your heart is hurting; it’s like an open sore
You think my life has ended and you won’t see me anymore.
But for those of us bound tight by love, death is not the curtain call;
It’s really the eternal beginning that waits for us all
So, dear Master as you live your life I patiently await
For us to be together when you pass through Heaven’s gate.

Thanks for sharing! I cried. =( I don't want to think about the day that I'll lose one of my 2.

MyDawgz, thank you so much for sharing that. We lost our 15 year old basset about a month ago, and it certainly touched upon all that I am feeling...We only had him for 5 years, yet he became so much a part of my day and my life...
