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
