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.
