I Remember

Post by Glenys » 26 Feb 2010, 13:14


I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep,
I could see that you were crying , found it hard to fall asleep
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear
It’s me I haven’t left you i am fine and I am here

I was close to you at breakfast,
I watched you pour the tea.
You were thinking of the many times
Your hands reached down to me

I was with you at the shops today, your arms were getting sore
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more
I was with you at my grave today, you tend it with such care
I want to reassure you, that I am not lying there

I walked with you towards the house
You fumbled with the key
I gently put my paw on you. I smiled and said "its me"

You looked so very tired and sank into the chair
I tried so hard to tell you That I was standing there

It’s possible for me to be near to you each day
To say to you with certainty I never went away

You sat there very quietly then smiled ,I think you knew
In the stillness of the evening, I was very close to you

The day is over….....I smile and watch you yawning
And say goodnight, God bless ,I will see you in the morning

And when the time is right for you To cross the great divide
I wish rush across to greet you And we’ll stand side by side.
I have so much to show you,there is so much to see
Be patient, live your journey out..then come home to be with me
