My Little Girl, Cocoa
My Big Man, Spot
(Daylesford, Victoria, Australia)
Cocoa, you came to me as a frightened little pup. You left me as a confident woman. A drama queen, you showed your feelings easily, your trust in me complete.
Oh I miss you, my Cocoa. Our lives entwined for 12 all too short years and our lives entwined eternally with your ashes mixed with mine when my time comes.
I have not left you, you will never leave me. Sleep well, my little love.
Oh My Spot. Cocoa left us in May. I begged you to stay with me but you could not.
Spot, my alpha male, the boss, but such a big softie. We shared adventures for 14 years, bringing me gifts when I arrived home, fighting me for sticks. You grew from a frightened little boy to be my big man, my support, my healer.
You will join Cocoa to be with me when the time comes. Thank you for your constant, dependable love, Spot. I miss you, and my heart breaks that you are gone.
I hope that you are with Cocoa in death as you were in life.
My pain I gladly suffer to give you each a peaceful, gentle death.
