Sailor & Jaimee, My Comrades in Crime
05/3/95 to 06/06/2007 together again 4/5/1999 to 4/4/2007

How do we ever let go and say goodbye?
It feels odd
to walk away from my desk and leave food unguarded
to come out of the bathroom and no-one is waiting
with adoring and loving eyes
to climb into bed and not have to battle
for my space or reclaim my pillow
it feels odd to lay my head on the pillow without
having wrapped my arms around a warm soft
bundle of K9 love and plant a kiss on the ear or between the eyes
to not have my legs weighted down in bed
it feels odd to get my own breakfast and
not prepare my Comrades meal before my own
it feels odd when Joe comes home
to have no "woo-wooo's" and smiles to greet him.
It feels odd to have no shadow.

"Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears but laugh and
 talk of me as if I were beside you, I loved you so,
 twas heaven here with you"
Isla Pashal Richardson
Pet Loss, and Will I See My Pet in Heaven

If tears could build a stairway

And memories were a lane

I would walk right up to Heaven

And bring you back again

No farewell words were spoken

No time to say goodbye

You were gone before we knew it

And only God knows why.

Our hearts still ache in sadness

And secret tears still flow

What it meant to lose you

No one will ever know.

But know we know, you want us

To mourn for you no more

To remember all the happy times

Life still has much in store.

Since you’ll never be forgotten

We pledge to you today

A hallowed place within our hearts

Is where you’ll always stay
