To Sparky, With Love
Sparky, you died of a heart attack today,
You died in my arms, on the way to the vet.
I tried to save you, but it was all in vain,
You need to know, you’re the most loving dog I ever met.
As I sit here with pen in hand,
Tears are streaming down my face.
The hurt is so real, I want you to know,
That no other doggie can ever take your place.
I dug your grave with so much sorrow,
I buried you out in my back yard.
So I can go out and talk with you,
Knowing each day it will be so hard.
Sparky, you will never be forgotten at our home,
We will remember the good times we shared.
We ran and played ball with Penny and Spud,
But with these two, you’ll never be compared.
Sparky, I know you’ve gone to doggie heaven,
The only place you could ever be.
I know you’re in good hands now,
And your doggie soul has been set free.
