Itís our final quiet time together,
she sits on my knees.
I look into her brown eyes,
all I see is unconditional love.
My heart fills with mutual admiration
as I lovingly stroke her shiny coat.
She snuggles closer and licks my ear,
I kiss her nose, this makes her smile,
her beautiful smile, a model for joy.
A sense of enduring love overwhelms me
as she peacefully falls into final sleep.
A torrent of tears pours from my eyes
as I look down at my loyal friend,
my precious gift,
