Forever in My Heart

One winter's day you came to us Right out of the blue! Damaged, alone, starved and scared - Your trauma silenced you. Your bark and bite got lost somehow But your character was loud and clear. You made the most of the love we gave. In return, you brought us so much cheer! Eight wonderful years ... How fast they flew! We're so grateful That we had you. We'll miss the spring that was in your step When your dish rang like a bell, The way your beautiful eyes lit up When exploring a different smell, The pitter-patter of your paws As you paced 'til you got attention, The puppy in you when it was time to play, Your grin and your affection! Yes dear Sally, our yellow Lab, How we miss you so! We promise never to forget you, Never to let go. And though on that Monday morning baby, We both had to part, You'll always be my little treasure Forever in my heart.
