In Memory of Sydney
I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep. I could see that you were crying you found it hard to sleep, I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear. "its'me, I haven't left you, Im well, Im fine, I'm here. " I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea, you were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me. I was with you at the shops today, your arms were getting sore. I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more. I was with you at my grave today, you tend it with such care. I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there. I walked with you towards the house, asa youfumbled for your key. I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "its me". You looked so very tired and sank into chair. I tried so hard to let you know that i was standing there. I'ts possible for me to be so near you everyday. To say to you with certantly, " I never went away". You sat there ver quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...in the stillness of that everything, I was very close to you. The day is over. I smile and watch you yawning and say goodnight, godbless. I'll see you in the morning." And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide. I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand side by side. I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see. Be patient, live your journey out..then come to be with me.
