5/15/2007 - 9/5/2019I miss my little faithful friend
who closed his eyes last night
as I wiped way my flowing tears
and held him really tight

He was my therapist - my confidant
whom I spoke to every day
And I know that I could rely on him
in every little way

He always listened without judging
and never repeated what I said
and all he asked for in return
was some love, some food, and a bed

Today there are no wagging tails
not even a whimper or a bark
Today there are no comforting hugs
or no long walks in the park

My heart is filled with sadness
Remembering those days
As he sat there looking up at me
with his adoring loving gaze

Of all the precious memories
the one that cannot be measured
is how much he was loved by me
and how much he was treasured
