My Forever Pet
There’s something missing in my home,
I feel it day and night,
I know it will take time and strength,
Before I feel quite right.
But just for now, I need to mourn,
My heart – it needs to mend.
Though some may say, ‘It’s just a pet’
I know I’ve lost a friend.
You’ve bought such laughter to my home,
Such richness to my days …
A constant friend through joy or loss
With gentle, loving ways.
Companion, pal, and confidante,
A friend I won’t forget,
You’ll live for always in my heart,
My sweet forever pet.”
