Golden Memories
By Author Unknown
An Animal Rights Poem from All-Creatures.org

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.

Golden Memories
By Author Unknown

They say memories are golden,
well, maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories, 
I only wanted you.

A million times I cried.

If love alone could have saved you,
you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
in death I love you still.

In my heart you hold a place
no one else could fill.
If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane.
I'd walk the path to heaven and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as we're called back one by one,
the chain will link again.
