Love you always.

You were my first own dog, I always wanted a black & white cocker spaniel.
And from 7 weeks to 14 years old you lit up my life.  I miss you every day.
 
Look after Twinkle and Braces for me until we're all together again.

 Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

 I'M STILL HERE



I stood beside your bed last night,
I came to have a peek.
I 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 am not lying there.



I walked with you toward 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 very quietly, then you 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 say "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 stand 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 and then come home to be with me.
