✿ A Friend ✿
When darkness falls upon the dawning,
as sunlight hides behind life’s rain ~
a friend extends with gentle warming,
their light of love to ease your pain.
A friend will walk beside you mourning,
through troubled times that come to call.
Stepping softly in your footsteps ~
prepared to catch you, if you fall.
When laughter drifts across the meadow,
floating ‘pon the sky lit blue ~
a friend will share those golden moments,
giving all ~ with love to you.
When life’s garden fills with blossoms,
as new morning shines with dew,
remember hearts that bleed with yours ~
and ‘tis there ~ lies friendship true.
A friend brings pleasure to life’s morning.
A friend brings warmth to ease life’s chill.
A friend brings comfort to ease life’s burden.
A friend brings love ~ and always will.

My dear beautiful friend Chris,
Thankyou from the bottom of my heart for leaving beautiful Easter gifts for my Nan and I, with such lovely words too, you are such a caring and thoughtful lady. Bless you.
I hope you are well my friend, I have not been on GTS as often as previously as I have a few things to sort out in my life, but I always check for angels special days, and had you and Bessie in my thoughts on her 21st Birthday. I know how much you miss her, as does she, and I am sure she paid her lovely Mum a visit to let you know she's having fun at the beautiful Rainbow Bridge.
Love always and take care. Sending Easter blessings to you and yours. xxxxx
Such a beautiful poem, I wanted to share with my caring “doggie” friends. xxx
♥.. if he wakes in Your arms...♥
I can hardly see through my tears...
today I sent my best friend of years
and years somewhere he had to go,
where pain and sickness he won't have to know.
He's been with me ever since he was a pup...
today I've had to give him up.
He was sick, we both knew it
and I wouldn't put him through it.
Thinking back to the day my wife brought him,
I told her then that I didn't want him...
"Noise and mess and bills to pay!"
- I can't believe I felt that way.
Didn't know that in the end,
he would be my dearest friend.
Didn't know that he would be
the greatest gift that came to me.
How did one like me deserve
a friend who wanted just to serve?
What was there that made him love me,
with nobody else above me?
When I looked into his eyes,
never did he criticize,
never did he hold a grudge,
never did he try to judge.
Recently, an anxious day.
"How come you don't want to play?"
Took him to the vet to see
what might be wrong with my "puppy".
Worse by far than I expected,
fatal illness was detected.
Nothing much that we could do
but keep him comfy til he's through.
Back at home I tried to tell him
of the bad luck that befell him
All I could see in his eyes
was wondering why his master cries.
I don't think he understood
- his eyes just asked "Wasn't I good?"
"How come now I make you sad?
Let me kiss and hug you, Dad!"
Two last weeks I had to try
to find a way to say goodbye.
In that time I told him more
than I ever had before
just how much I loved my pup,
how it hurt to give him up.
How though gone, he'd always be
inside my heart, a part of me.
Then today was no mistaking,
I made the decision, my heart was breaking.
I called and asked the vet to come by
- I didn't have to tell him why.
He arrived in awhile and asked "Are you ready?"
I sighed, I nodded, I felt so unsteady.
Got down on the floor by my boy who was dying,
and I just didn't care if the vet saw me crying.
As my pup slipped away, the last things he felt
were the kisses and hugs of his master who knelt
On that "blankie" beside him to bid him goodbye,
who had just one more minute to tell him, to try
to say thanks to his boy for a lifetime of love....
"Dear God, let me see him in heaven above!
But for now Lord, please hold him, watch over his rest...
if he wakes in Your arms tell him I love him best."
