Another moving poem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain does keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done
for this - the last battle -can't be won.

You will be sad I understand
But don't let grief then stay your hand.
For on this day, more than the rest
Your love and friendship must stand the test.

We have had so many happy years,
And for each year, you'll shed a tear
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.

Take me to where my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end.
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.

Don't grieve that it must now be you
Who has to decide this thing to do.
We've been so close - we two -these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.

Gees Hissy, what a heart wrencher....that really brought tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat...I can just imagine my little baby Tetley saying that when we had to let him go...

I still love you and miss you Tetley baby, mummy's little smurf...
Ebony sweetie - we love and miss you too, you were soooo small, I wonder how you've grown now "titch" .....look after each other....
