lady my Sheltie

Oh Lady, my Lady, my sweet Sheltie love,
Was called by God to her home up above,
There she will share her love, her spirit and her Light
and play with her friends until her family alights.

Lady came to us at three weeks of age,
Energy seemed to flow from her as she slept in her cage,
She was always running and jumping--just having some fun-
As she jumped to the beat of her own Piper's drum.

I hadn't seen Lady for so many  years,
But I kept her close through my son, the Dear,
I knew Lady would soon leave us, due to her age,
And that's what happened last week--thus closing her page.

My Ex sent a letter which brought a tear to my eye,
It said how he would miss her and say his "Good-bye",
For he buried her with sorrow, then built her a Shrine
Which tells of her life and her joy which will always be mine.

Oh Lady, my Lady, my sweet Sheltie love,
I will miss you until I see you above.
