Before I share my poem. I want to share some insight to it.
I was house/dog sitting for my brother and his family while they were away on vacation. Both female, Golden Retrievers were due to have their puppies..
The first mom, (Sarah) had hers and everything went well. The second mom (Julia) was not so fortunate. She developed complications and as a result some of her puppies died...
All this overwhelmed me, because first of all I never seen puppies born and yet I was now having to deal with puppies that died...It was an experience I will never forget..
I wrote a poem about these precious pups.
It has helped me deal with the pain I feel.
Tiny and so small, I tried to help you through,
breathing for only minutes, life not promised to you.
Your mother not knowing what to do,
could not extend your life for you.
Now that you crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge,
with some of the others, who's lives short lived.
Open your eyes and enjoy the view,
run all around, no harm will come to you.
I will never forget, nor do I choose to,
the moments I had, I cared for you.
I'll smile inside,
when I see a rainbow above,
thinking of my Puppy Love....
