A Special Place – poem

dog running

You have a special place, Dear Lord
that I know you always keep.
A special place reserved for dogs,
to peacefully fall asleep.

A place with fluffy pillows,
and a yard for hiding bones.
With maybe a little babbling creek,
that rushes over stones.

With wide green fields and flowers,
for those who never knew,
of running, playing freely,
under a sky of perfect blue.

Lord, I know you keep this special place,
and so to you I pray,
for one oh so special dog,
who came to you today.

She was full of strength and love,
and so very, very wise.
The puppy look she once had,
this morning left her eyes.

She will be dearly missed, Dear Lord,
This special love of mine.
But, now she’ll romp and play,
in your land that’s so divine.

Speak to my baby softly, please
with a hug and a warm hello.
She’s a special gift to you, dear Lord,
from me-who loved her so.

I am a father, a husband and a dog owner. Like many of you, I love my pets and they are treated as family members. On saying that, if you ask my wife, the order is dogs, daughter and then me but hey, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I write about pet ownership with a slant towards pet loss. Whilst that may sound incredibly depressing to some, I want to focus more on why our pets are so important, the effect they have on our lives and the wonderful memories they create for us. I have been a qualified hypnotherapist since 1999 hence the many references to self-hypnosis as a method of dealing with the pain of pet loss. I know this works so I hope you will give it a try.
