How many of you have lost that beloved pet who was actually a member of the family? They are one thing in life whose loss is so devastating, and yet we cling to the hope of seeing them again one day. Until that time, we live with their memory etched in our mind, heart and soul.
The newest version of my book entitled Angels with Fur – Do We See Our Beloved Pets in Heaven, is now available on Amazon.
Since I recently lost my precious boy, the emptiness I have experienced without him is almost more than I can bear. I long for the day I will see all my beloved Angels with Fur who have gone on to a better place. I truly believe that a loving God knows our deepest longings, and because there will no tears in Heaven, I know my fur babies will all be there.
Angels with Fur tells the heart-warming stories of all the pets I have encounterd in my life and gives hope to other pet owners that someday they will be reunited with their best friend.
A Dog is Always by Your Side
I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peek.
I could see that you were crying, you found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
“It’s me, I haven’t left you, I’m well, I’m fine, I’m here.”
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today, your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today, you tend it with such care.
I want to reassure you that I ‘m not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said, “it’s me.”
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair,
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It’s possible for me, to be near you every day.
To say to you with certainty, “I never went away.”
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew…
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over… I smile and watch you yawning
And say, “Good –night, God bless, I’ll see you in the morning.
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I’ll rush across to greet you and we’ll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see,
Be patient, live your journey out… then come home to be with me.
