Requiem to my Pet

Inspired by my Sister in Law's late Maltese Sugar


Where has my lovely lap pillow gone?
The one that I rested my book upon.
Eyes as black as darkest night,
Hair as white as angels flight.

I feel your presence at my feet,
Know not your weight as I sleep.
I know you're with me as I dream.
That things are not quite as they seem.

You are gone, my heart is broken,
And I hear words you've never spoken.
"I will always be near, my darling master,
I have just gone ahead a little faster"

One day we'll be together, never fear,
Until that day I know you're near,
I know you're waiting just over the ridge,
At the foot of the Rainbow Bridge.
