Precious Friend who I hold so dear
A love so strong – it can bring me to tears
Companion and confidant – real and true
Without you in my life I don’t know what I would
Many years you have been by my side
Even when life became a wild and crazy ride
Loyal and loving – you comforted me so
How to thank you – I really don’t know
A kind and gentle spirit – a true friend you are
Traveling with me no matter how far
Quiet and sensitive – always calming me
How therapeutic your touch can be!
Happy sounds and cuddly moments we share
Our friendship a gift that is quite rare
Others wonder – they say you are are just a pet
An animal it’s true
But I truly owe my strength and sanity to you
Do you know how you are loved and cared for so?
A gift from God to rescue me and show how to love
You are not just a pet after all you truly will be missed when you go.
