Your Pet Loss Poems

'Little One - for Scamp'

My Little Friend

My Little Friend

You captured our hearts, little one,
with bright eyes and that busy tail,
Ever trusting, ever eager,
you loved us always without fail.

But little one, your eyes grew dim,
when cradled in our loving arms,
and even this sad sea of tears,
could never keep you free from harm.

Yet as you gently slipped away,
to a better place you have passed,
and leaving pain and fear behind,
you are running so free and fast,

Through sunlit meadows, little one,
like the ones you and I would share,
So wait for me my little one,
and one day I will meet you there.
