There’s something missing in my home, I feel it day and night, I know it will take time and strength, Before I feel quite right. But just for now, I need to mourn, My heart – it needs to mend. Though some may say, ‘It’s just a pet’ I know I’ve lost a friend. You’ve bought such laughter to my home, Such richness to my days … A constant friend through joy or loss With gentle, loving ways. Companion, pal, and confidante, A friend I won’t forget, You’ll live for always in my heart, My sweet forever pet.” Anon.
