Brandy: A poem written by a 12yr old

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
My daughter wrote this poem, shortly after finding out that Brandy's tumor was inoperable. She had me print it out, and it is laying ontop of Brandy's body.

Title: My Furry Friend by Kendra

Brandy is as playful as a child,\t\t\t\t\t\t
She comes to me when she’s called,
With spirits so high she’s almost wild.
When I enter my house after a very lonely day,
She jumps while wishing for me to play.
As she hollers with such joy,
Asking me for her little tug toy,
She is my furry friend,
All the way to the very, very cold, hard end.

She is there for me when I start to cry.
If only she didn’t have to go,
Unfortunately she can’t say no.
She is nine,
This is old for my fine friend.

I hope she promises to wait for me,
If so I will be in so much glee!
I hope we have taken good care of you,
Or I will always be blue.
Knowing that you’re in so much pain,
Makes me sick again and again.

When I let you outside you want me to play,
It’s too bad you get older and older every day.

I will never forget your gold and white fur,
That was all over me everyday at school.

I love you Brandy, I love you so,
I hate how someday soon you’ll have to go.


We are all doing ok....but there isn't a day that I don't go to say something to do with Brandy....if I drop food, there's no calling Brandy.... When the doorbell rings, the house is silent.....No asking the kids if anyone fed Brandy yet....No to alot of things.

It is amazing how much of a part of our lives she was. The little things we didn't think of.

I miss her so. We all do.

I have no doubt that the decision was right. I have no doubt that she is somewhere, wagging her fool tail off and belting someone with it. I have no doubt that her lump is gone, and she can eat as much as she wants.

RIP Brandy: spring 1999 - July 11 2009

Kendra, that was such a beautiful poem. Your love for Brandy - and her love for you - totally shines through. I am left in tears.

To the whole family - I am so sorry for your loss.

Brandy, play happily over the bridge, wagging your fool tail off and belting all those dog-loving kitties with it in your excitement to play.

Many hugs to you Chris and lots of warm wishes to your family. I know you will miss her but I hope the pain turns into warm loving memories quickly

RIP, Brandy. She'll always be a part of your family. Years from now, when Kendra has forgotten all about the poem she wrote, a sight, smell or sound will bring Brandy to her mind, and she'll feel that love and bond all over again.

Play on at the Bridge, Brandy

Kendra is obviously a gifted young lady, both in poetry and in compassion and love for fellow creatures.

I'm so sorry. Words can't express how bad I feel for you and your family right now. You're right, Brandy is somewhere else, painfree and happy, wagging her tail off

Rest in Peace, sweet Brandy

Instant tears - I can't say anything anyone else hasn't already, just know that we understand.

Thank you all

My family and I truly appreciate it.

The Childrens Aid lady was asking Kendra about Brandy today and how she was dealing with it. Kendra is so brave.... The hardest part for all of us, is people coming to the door. They actually have to ring the doorbell now.

We are doing well. I miss her, but I am at peace knowing she is not suffering.
Kendra misses her horribly, but is at peace knowing she's not suffering.
Kayleigh is young, with not as much attachment, so she is doing fine with it.

Hugs, and thank you all.

I`ve been away from the site a few days so I am so sorry not to respond earlier. The poem was beautiful and your daughter is very talented.

I know you knew it was coming but you still feel it as hard. I`m so sorry you had to loss such a special dog. I`m sure she is watching over you all and will be waiting when the time comes.

Rest In Peace Brandy
