can hardly see through the tears…..today I sent our best friend
of 4 short years,
4 short years somewhere she had to go, where pain and sickness
she won’t have to know.
She’s been with us ever since she was 1 1/2, today we had to
give her up.
was sick, we both knew it and we wouldn’t put her through it.
Thinking back to the day my wife chose Bella, I was reluctant as
to her choice.
can’t believe that I felt that way. Didn’t know it then,
but in the end she would be my dearest friend.
Didn’t know, that she would be the greatest gift that came to
did one like me deserve a friend who wanted just to serve?
What was there that made her love us, with nobody above us?
When we looked into her eyes, never did she ever criticize;
never did she hold a grudge, never did she ever judge.
Recently, an anxious day. “How come you have gone lame?”
Took her to the vet to see what might be wrong with her.
Worse by far than we had expected, a fatal illness was detected.
Nothing much that we could do but keep her comfy till she’s
made the decision, as our hearts were breaking.
called the vet to enter the room, where my wife stayed with her,
as he knew why.
heart aches within me too much. As my wife stayed to
comfort her to send her on her way.
wife stayed with her as she slowly went away, sitting on the
floor and comforting her all the way.
entered the room to say good bye and we shed our tears as she
Bella slipped away, the last thing she felt were hugs and kisses
from my wife as she slowly went away.
that blankie beside her, to bid her good bye, who had just one
more minute to tell her to try to say thanks to our girl for a
short time of true love.
Dear God, let us see her in heaven above!
for now Lord, please hold her, watch over her rest…..if she
awakes in Your arms, tell her we loved her the best.
Love, David Chan (Daddy)
