For Our Lost Little Ones

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Pardon me if this is a common practice for vets, but this really hit home for me. I recieved a sympathy card from their office, which I know most will do, but there was also a little poem in there that describes what I'm going through right now, while I miss my Roscoe. I just wanted to share it. Sorry if you've all heard it before, I just thought it was beautiful.

Tribute To A Best Friend~

Sunlight streams through the window pane,

Unto a spot on the floor.

Then I remember, it's where you used to lie,

But now you are no more.

My feet walk down a hall of carpet

and muted echos sound.

Then I remember, it's where your paws would joyously abound.

A voice is heard along the road

and up beyond the hill.

Then I remember it can't be yours,

your golden voice is still.

But I'll take that vacant spot of floor,

and empty muted hall,

and lay them with the absent voice,

and unused dish along the wall.

I'll wrap these treasured memories

in a blanket of my love,

and keep them for my best friend,

until we meet above.~

I miss you Roscoe.

I got one from my vet that made me cry too! I kept the card for Glitch's baby book.... its so nice that the vets that put our loves ones out of their misery are nice enough to send us a consoling card! Especially since everytime you bring your other pets in you have to look at them and know they PTS your loved one! I have a great vet though, and he only wanted to do what was best for Glitch.

Im sorry about your Roscoe!! Its so hard, isn't it?? Later on Ill put up what was in my card on here for yall to read!

I will post what was on my Cards too. The Rainbow Bridge Poem was in with the Cards. I will try to get a Pic of it. I even got a card from the Er Vet when I lost 2 Cats there years ago. i can not find those Cards since we moved here.

Okay, this is what my sympathy card said:

Our Gental Companions may be the truest friends.

We are sorry you have lost a special pet.

In extending our most sincere sympathies

we wanted to let you know,

Your pet was special to us, too.
