OurBeloved Bear 28/2/2017 to 18/6/2020

Post by Glenys »

I WILL LEND ...

I will lend to you a pup, God said,
For you to love him while he lives
and to mourn him when he is dead.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years
or maybe two or three
but will you, till I call him back
take care of him for me?

He'll bring his charms to gladden you
and (should his stay be brief)
you'll always have his memories
as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise that he will stay,
since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught below
I want this pup to learn.

I've looked the whole world over
in search of teachers true
And from the folk that crowd life's land
I have chosen you.
now will you give him all your love
Nor think the labour vain
Nor hate me when I come to take my pup back home again
And should I call him back
much sooner than you've planned
Please brave the bitter grief that comes
and try to understand

I fancied that I heard them say
"Dear Lord, Thy Will be Done,"
For all the joys this pup will bring,
the risk of grief We’ll run.
we will shelter him with tenderness
And love him while we may
And for the happiness we will know
forever grateful stay
When Our much loved dog Leaves this world of strife
We will get another dog And love him all his life

Dear Glenys and Sam,
I was very sorry to read about your beloved Bearsie Bear on Thursday. :love2:
It seems very unfair that he had to leave you so soon.
I hope Pinot and Freddie are able to ease your pain a little.
Sending you all my love and prayers,
Linda, Breagha and Toby. Xxx

Dear Glenys and Sam,

We are so sorry to read you have lost your beloved Bear and at such a young age, our hearts go out to both of you.

Even though Bear only had a short life he couldn’t have had a better or more loved one.

Thinking of you both :love3:

Love

Dear Glenys and Sam. So very sorry to hear this sad news. Don’t know what to say as no words can possibly express the heartache and pain that you must be feeling. Crying for you whilst I am writing.

Sending you both my love

Pat xx
