My beloved Princess,

I wasn't ready to lose you. You were my loyal and faithful companion. Remained by my side during my darkest hours. Filled my life with joy and expectation.

My heart aches so much for not having you next to me. I miss your little body next to mine in the nights, the warmth of it on my lap every time you had a chance to sit there.

I remember coming home and watching you at the window, waiting for me, and how you jumped for joy when I opened the door. I remember every morning when I woke up and heard the little bell on your collar announcing that you were ready to follow me around the house.

There are many fond memories of you that will be locked in my heart forever. I only wish more people were like you. It's really hard being here without you, but I only wait for the time when we will reunite in a better place forever.

A month ...
by: Anonymous

A month has passed since your departure. My heart aches and is broken because you are not here. I love you.

Missing you too much
by: Your mommy

Today I'm missing you so much...this is for you

The Rainbow Bridge
By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.

Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.

On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.

Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.

All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.

So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.

They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, they cross over? together.
