joanne_asia says, I would like to ask Cynthia to read "I Stood By Your Bed"

cynbogiebit says, I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.

cynbogiebit says, I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.

cynbogiebit says, I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear.

cynbogiebit says, "It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here!"

cynbogiebit says, I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,

cynbogiebit says, You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached                 down to me.

cynbogiebit says, I was with you at the shops today, your arms were getting                 sore.

cynbogiebit says, I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

cynbogiebit says, I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.

cynbogiebit says, I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there.

cynbogiebit says, I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your           key.

cynbogiebit says, I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "It's me!"

cynbogiebit says, You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.

cynbogiebit says, I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.

cynbogiebit says, It's possible for me to be so near you everyday,

cynbogiebit says, To say to you with certainty, "I never went away".

cynbogiebit says, You sat there very quietly, then smiled; I think you knew...

cynbogiebit says, in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

cynbogiebit says, The day is over ... I smile and watch you yawning

cynbogiebit says, and say "Goodnight, God bless, I'll see you in the morning.

cynbogiebit says, And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,

cynbogiebit says, I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand side by side.

cynbogiebit says, I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.

cynbogiebit says, Be patient, live your journey out ... 

                                Then come home to be with me.  

 

joanne_asia says, Could we all light one last candle for the health and well being of our courageous epi's still struggling with canine epilepsy especially for Brenda's Fionn?

DebDudepup says, Jacqui, I hope that you won't mind asking your friends here to remember your dear mother and to send you hugs and our love.
