Dedication to Spier

I can't help but dedicate a post to our beloved Spier, who would have been 13 next month.  We were blessed to have so many wonderful years with him and will miss him terribly.  Thank you Spier for bringing us  so much love and light to our lives, not to mention taking me on walks everyday.  May you   be as spoiled and happy in eternity as you were in life.

I stood by your bed last night

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
We could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
“It’s me, I haven’t left you, I’m well, I’m fine, I’m here.”
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea, You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me. 

I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore. I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care, I want to reassure you, that I’m not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key. I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said “it’s me”
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair. I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It’s possible for me to be so near you every day. To say to you with certainty, “I never went away.”
You sat there quietly, then smiled, I think you knew, in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day Is over…I smile and watch you yawning and “good-night, God bless, I’ll see you in the morning.”
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide, I’ll rush across to greet you and we’ll be, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see. Be patient, live your journey out…then come home to me.

These words, however, come from my heart.
