My Baby Girl, Holly
by Laurie Dauer
(Maumee, Ohio, USA)
I looked in your eyes as you looked up at me
and I knew our life together was meant to be.
We took you home to get you healthy and clean
and you took our hearts forever, it would seem.
You gave us such happiness with your goofy ways
and made us smile on oh so many days.
You loved the park where you could run and run
and we loved to take you there too, it was so much fun.
The games that you played with your sister, Jess
made every day worthwhile, more than one could ever guess.
You were such a good dog and beautiful, too.
My heart will never be the same, not without you.
I love you baby girl, more than words can ever say.
I don't understand why you were taken away.
Your memory will always be dear to my heart.
I can't believe that we are now apart.
You were just 5 years old, way too young to go.
I'm sorry you were sick, I just didn't know.
You kept on going even though you must not have felt well
but now it feels like I'm living in hell.
I miss you so much, more and more each day.
I wonder how I will go on when I feel this way,
but I'll see you some day
on Rainbow Bridge they say.
I will hug you and rub you and kiss your face
then hopefully we can go back to our special place.
I love you baby girl, I'll never be the same,
but will always remember the day that you came.
