A STUMP OF A TAIL
BEFORE I WAS A DOG MUM
A STUMP OF A TAIL

I stood beside your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, you found it hard to sleep.
 
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here"
 
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
you were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.
 
I was with you at the shops today, your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take the parcels, I wish I could do more.
 
I was with you at my grave today, you tend it with such care.
I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there.
 
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "it's me."
 
You looked so very tired, you sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
 
It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
 
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...in
the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
 
The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
and say "goodnight, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."
 
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you, and we'll stand side by side.
 
I have so many things to show you, there is so much to see.
Be patient, live your journey out... then come home to be with me.

DON'T CRY
 
Don't cry any more tears for me
I am at peace.
I'm finally free like the eagle in the sky,
I am soaring,  so please don't cry.
I know you love me, I love you too.
But my time was over, was finally through.
I have ascended to a better place
which is not confined to time or space.
To those that love me, I did not fall,
I only succombed to a Higher call.
Do not mourn me, I am with you still.
I'll be with you always
from dawn until..............
