Obituary of Emma Rose Lewis

Don't cry sweet mama, please don't weep

Please try dear mama, to get some sleep

I know you're sad and it's because of me

But don't cry mama, for now I'm pain free

 

I know you miss me and I miss you too 

No one could have loved me more than you

I know of some dogs who run away to die 

But not me mama, I looked you straight in the eye

 

I didn't want to leave you, but my body lost the fight

And now my dearest mama, you mourn me day and night 

You wish you could have given me a bit more time to live

But mama please believe me, I had little left to give

 

I'm glad you took me on that day, there was no other choice

I would have told you 'do it' if I had a human voice

Don't feel guilty mama, I know it broke your heart 

I was always going to leave you first, we knew it from the start

 

But what a life you gave me, it really was the best

Not many have a life like mine and for that I'm truly blessed

I hope one day I'll see you again with a smile upon your face

But for now I'll snuggle up inside your heart, my very favorite place
