Sweet Tess – poem

woman sunset contemplating

Today I sit alone and cry
your loss so sad I can’t describe
my memories soar a wave so high
your playful bow your twinkling eye

Your life was full if not so long
you gave so much and asked for none
your ease with us your clumsy grace
oh Tess you’re better than this place

Our Mum and Dad stayed by your side
and helped you through that final slide
they’ll miss you so just as will I
I was not there to say good-bye

My dear sweet Tess you’ve gone to rest
but this I know you’ve stood the test
your heart of gold it will remain
a part of us where you shall reign

Your spirit bright it fills my heart
still I can’t bear to see you part
today I sit alone and cry
tomorrow I’ll stand and say good-bye

Remember Our Love – poem

bird flying sunset

I was chosen today
I’m learning to fly
the world took me away,
but please don’t you cry

And I chose you today
to try and be strong
so please don’t you cry
and don’t say that I’m gone

When you’re feeling alone
just remember our love,
I’m up near the stars
looking down from above.

Remember our love
In a moment you’ll see
that I’m still here beside you
when you’re thinking of me.

Waiting – poem

dog tennis ball

I got to the gate of heaven yesterday
after we said good-bye.
I began to miss you terribly,
because I heard you cry.

Suddenly there was an angel and she asked me
to enter heaven’s gate.
I asked her if I could stay outside
for someone who’d be late.

I wouldn’t make much noise you see,
I wouldn’t bark or howl.
I’ll only wait here patiently
and play with my tennis ball.

The angel said I could stay right here
and wait for you to come
Because heaven just wouldn’t be heaven
if I went in alone.

So I’ll wait here, you take your time,
but keep me in your heart.
Because heaven just wouldn’t be heaven
without you to warm my heart.
