Cry Poem about losing a pet

I found this...it's a tear jerker but it's for all of us that lost a pet that we loved...

I always knew this time would come,
From the very instant our eyes first met.
How I loved you then! How I love you now!
I made a promise then, and I keep that promise now...
You will not suffer from a pain that will not heal;
You will not know the loss of a life remembered, now gone.

It is for me alone to make this decision,
The price for the bright joy and pure laughter
You brought me during the time we shared.
I am the only one who can decide when it is time.
When my hope dies, and my fears ride high,
Just when I need you most, I must let you go.

It is for you alone to tell me when you are ready
For without your guidance, I will not know
When to lay my grief, my guilt, my anger,
My sorrow and my selfish heart aside
And give you this last gift, this greatest gift.
Your eyes will speak to mine, and I will know.

The pain of this moment is excruciating.
Tears stream down my face in a river of sorrow.
And my heart drowns in a pool of grief.
For you have spoken and I have listened,
And unlike other decisions I have made
This one brings no relief...no comfort...no peace.

For if there's one thing you've taught me,
If there's only one thing I've learned...
Unconditional love has a condition after all,
I must be willing to let you go, when you speak to me
I must be willing to help you go, if you cannot go alone.
And I must accept my pain so you can be free of yours.

Go easily now, go quickly now,
Do not linger here, it is time for you to leave.
Go find your strength, go find your youth.
Go find the ones who've gone before you.
You are free to leave me now, free to let your spirit soar
Rest easy now, your pain will soon be gone.

I pray I will find comfort in my memories...
In the dark and lonely days ahead.
I cannot say I will not miss you, I cannot say I will not cry.
For only my tears can heal my broken heart.
But, I promise you this: as long as I live,
You will live, alive in my mind, forever in my heart.

So I give you this last gift, all I have left to give,
And this will be my greatest gift...sending you away.
It is the measure of my unconditional love...
For only the greatest love can say,
"Good-bye, go find the bridge, we'll meet again,
Loving you has been the greatest gift of all."

Author, Karla M. Bertram

Thanks for sharing this, and yes it is a tear jerker. So many of us are still stuggling over the loss of our beloved pets, and not everybody understands.

I'm going to print this poem, and put in a memorial journal I am creating for my beloved Sachi, who passed in April. I've decided to start this journal as a place to share my thoughts and memories of her, to put her pictures, to go to and tell her Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday, or whatever I'm wanting to say to her. I am surprised as how much it still hurts, even 8 months later.

I thought i would post mine in this one as well. I think this thread should be made as a sticky so new members that have lost there pets can find it easily..
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The firsst one os for somebody who has ever had to make the decision of getting a ppet Euthanized. I know sometimes you often wonder if you made the right choice or think to yourself that maybe your baby could have pulled through, even though it was a better idea to put your pet "out of its misery". I for one still do not know how i would ever make the desicion. And i commend everybody who was brave enough to make the right choice.


MAY I GO
by Susan A. Jackson

May I go now?
Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye to pain filled days
and endless lonely nights?

I've lived my life and done my best,
an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond
and set my spirit free?

I didn't want to go at first,
I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now
to a warm and loving light.

I want to go. I really do.
It's difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can
to live just one more day.

To give you time to care for me
and share your love and fears.
I know you're sad and afraid,
because I see your tears.

I'll not be far, I promise that,
and hope you'll always know
that my spirit will be close to you
wherever you may go.

Thank you so for loving me.
You know I love you, too.
That's why it's hard to say goodbye
and end this life with you.

So hold me now just one more time
and let me hear you say,
because you care so much for me,
you'll let me go today.


I STOOD BESIDE YOUR BED LAST NIGHT

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,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm 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, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "It's me."

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.

It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."

You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew ...
in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
and say "Goodnight, God bless, 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 home to be with me.Author Unknown

Unlove Missing you, Gizmo,with all of my heart

I just couldn't log on before tonight ,because, i am suffering from such a broken heart. My beloved 15 year old Yorkie named Gizmo, who was my constant companion from the day I rescued him from a house of abuse, had to cross over the rainbow bridge after suffering a stroke. I had to do what was right and humane for him, and that was three weeks ago, and i am still crying. he was so very special. we went through so many things together over the 15 years I was lucky enough to have him by my side.it might be just my imagination, but I could sware that from the day i rescued that less then 1 pound yorkie puppy from his abusers, and nursed him back to health, which included two surgeries to repair Legg Perthe Calve syndrome, and a titanium implant, he looked into my eyes as if he knew I saved him. he looked at me like he looked at no other! I am so grateful for the 15 years of love he gave me. it was the hardest decision i had to make but i knew it was the right thing to do so he would not suffer...RIP my dear Gizmo..I will love you forever ans ever..Mom

I hope you don't mind - but I copied your post and turned it into its own thread so you could get some support.

I'm so very sorry for your loss.
