Scott lit a candle

Where did the years go? How hard it was to see you, This morning laying there. Not knowing when I went to sleep, I would wake up to my greatest fear. Your little body so still and cold, A sign to all that you’re gone. To be free in a better place, In the great beyond. You came to us so long ago, A carefree little girl. Running jumping and making a fuss, Your actions were a whirl. And through the years you gave us love, Even when your body was frail. The loved you always showed to us, Through the wagging of the stubby tail. We watched as the years went by, And time started to take its toll. Your little body started to slow down, But there was vigor in your soul. Nothing would slow your spirit down, Not a stroke or loss of sight. The seizures and loss of your teeth, You couldn’t even bite. Holding you last night in my arms, Your head against my chest. Knowing that your time was coming, But hoping for the best. One final walk in the cool of night, In the stroller being pushed here and there. To let you feel the warmth once more, Of the evening air. We had you drink a little more, Then down in your favorite bed. We placed you in so gingerly, And adjusted your little head. But the years that kept marching on, Those sixteen until the end. And this morning I woke up, To the loss of a dearest friend. The silent tears fill up my eyes, And roll slowly down my face. But also a smile upon my lips, To know you are in a better place. To run again with youth once more, Across the grass so green. And swim in the crystal streams with your daughter buttercup, A sight I see in my dreams. And one day we will meet again, When my life on earth is through. And greet you again on Rainbow Bridge, And walk through the Pearly Gates with you. R.I.P. Ladybug (Momma) Your presence we will miss. Your memories we will treasure. Loving you forever in our hearts. Forgetting you never.
