It's been four years but she's still very much in my heart...
Lambchop's Sweet Repose by Luba
Her time has come to meet new friends
In that place where life never ends
Where bellies get rubbed with loving caress
And tails wagging ardently in sheer happiness.
She's no longer angry or mistrusting of all
She knows where she is there's a safe place to fall.
On earth she wasn’t social, but suddenly here
In this place of new friends, she plays with all who come near.
Her ears always upright and on the alert
For some new activity she could exert
Her energy now boundless and no longer a drain
She runs with her new friends on this endless plain.
There's a hole in my heart you once occupied,
I miss you so much and loved you with pride.
The burdens you bared were an albatross
But you were tough as they come and showed them who's boss.
For those who knew her I'm sure she's sad
She departed so quickly when she would like to have had
At least one last lick from her loving Eddie
So for him she will wait, until he's ready.
For this last refrain, she bids all good-bye.
She's at peace and in comfort amid the clouds in the sky.
So long my Lambchop, enjoy your new world
Knowing you've filled mine with love unfurled.
