There’s something missing in my home,
I feel it day and night.
I know it will take time and strength
Before things feel quite right.
But just for now, I need to mourn,
My heart – it needs to mend.
Though some may say it’s “just a pet”,
I know I’ve lost a friend.
You’ve brought such laughter to my home,
And richness to my days,
A constant friend through joy or loss,
With gentle loving ways.
Companion, pal and confidante,
A friend I won’t forget,
You’ll live for always in my heart,
My sweet forever pet.
It’s been a couple of months now, but still…
My heart can’t take it. I mean, I’m glad he’s not in pain, and I hope his soul is at peace, but…
I can’t. I can’t imagine a day in our family life without him in it. Coltrane was the most gentle and most well-behaved dog I’ve ever known. I’m so grateful he was ours, and I’m grateful that all my children were blessed by his presence in their childhoods. I’m glad he lived a long and healthy life. I am glad…
But I’m just so very sad.
