The Time Has Come

Though the time has come 
To say good bye
The bond we share
Will never die.

You were my friend
Yet so much more
You walked on two
I ran on four.

You touched my heart
And made me feel
A simple love
I knew was real.

You blessed my life
With your loving care
And when I needed you most
You were always there.

I want you to know
That I’m still here
I live in your heart
And I’m always near.

I’m the warm sun
Brightening your day
I’m the gentle breeze
Chasing your blues away.

My spirit is a snowflake
Dancing to the ground
You can feel my presence
In the silence all around.

Though the time has come
To say good bye
I continue to live
In the vast blue sky.


This poem was written for a very special Rottweiler named Nakita, who touched the hearts of 
many with her beautiful smile and strong attitude.  Due to cancer, on October 30, 2009 her 
owners were forced to make that dreadful decision.  Having had to make that dreadful 
decision myself back in 1998, I felt their pain and wrote this poem.  I then placed placed the 
poem on a picture of Nakita in photoshop.  I blew the picture poem up to an 8x10 and gave 
it to Nakita's owners.  It was a gift that made them cry, but also touched their hearts!

    Great sentiments for a beloved pet, who was a part of the family, I am sure. I have been touched in life the same way when I have lost my pets. God Bless, Sincerely, Moses
