Pets are wonderful. They are faithful and loving in everyway possible.
This is a poem that I wrote about my dog Ginger. She died 24 yrs. ago, but
she was the one at my side when I was dx with ms.
Good-bye my friend
How hard it is to do
My heart is heavy with sorrow
knowing now I only have memories of you
Your cold nose against my face to wake me
saying nature's calling
Your head on my lap when I am at my lowest with those
beautiful sad brown eyes seeming to say
"I Am Here"
The wiggle of your body when you nestle close on my bed.
waiting so quietly and still hoping not to be noticed.
The sweet cunning ways you had, to get your way, knowing
I would give in no matter what.
I will miss the quiet times we shared putting the rest of the
You were the only one I could share my deepest thoughts
I could cry, laugh, dance, sing and you stayed by me without
one critical sigh.
To walk in the door and have you greet me, tail wagging away
your voice in its high wail seeming to say, "YOU'RE HOME"
I am glad to see you.
The clicking of your food and water bowls, saying "don't forget
Your foolish antics making me laugh so hard I could burst
Just knowing you were here, never to be alone.
My friend there is so much that can't be put into words.
Your death has left a big void in my life.
Everyday that goes by, every bark I shall hear, the memory
of you will always be here,
Ginger was 12yrs. old when she passed. She was a Brittany Spaniel
