After a month of watching my Silver go down hill faster and faster we finally decided that after 17 wonderful years it was time let him go. He was in heart failure by the time we got the the vet which made me even more certain that my decision was the right one. I held him in my arms like I always promised him I would and talked to him until he was gone. He is now buried next to our shed and I will be ordering his custom gravestone next month.
They say memories are golden, well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you, a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place no one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same.
But as the Goddess calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
God took someone away today, he took away my friend
A place I cannot follow yet, to heaven he was sent
The way you wrapped around my head When I laid there in Tears
The purpose you were put on earth to have 17 happy years
The Way you Pranced Around The House, Collective, Calm and Cool
The ways that my heart lit up when i'd see you after school
Late nights we spent reading, well I did while you slept
And silently around the house you crept
You were a constant in my life and I just wish that I knew why
That when you love something so much it always has to die
The late nights we had eachother, nothing else ever meaned or mattered
The losing of my loving friend has left my heart bruised and battered
The black and white baby with the extra toes, the one I was thankful to know
Now that you have gone ahead, my life just moves so slow
I know that when I feel those eyes, the ones when your all alone
That its you watching over me from the place we'll both call home
So wait for me in that perfect place the one made for me and you.
And when im done with all life's chores I promise i'll come for you.
