Missing my dog recently laid to rest
Anyone else missing their 4 legged critters. My girl came into my life on December 26th, 1996. She was laid to rest on Dec. 27th, 2012. 16 years and one day. It is truly amazing how much space in your home and your heart a 23 lb. animal can occupy. I know I was fortunate to have more years with her than most people but I miss her so much. It wasn't long enough.
One More Day with Riley (1996-2012)
If I could have just one more day
To tell you that I love you,
To hold you close and rub your nose,
And show you how much I care.
Another day to be with you,
to play your favorite games,
To see you wag your tail just one more time,
Because I said your name.
One more day I could come home,
And know that you'd be here,
To snuggle with you one more time,
And whisper in your ear.
We use to journey side by side,
With a twinkle in our eyes,
Two friends sharing moments,
Living life without a care.
Before we knew it, the moments passed,
And you're no longer here,
Like money spent, time ran out,
Gone are the days without a spare.
I told you that I loved you and held you in my arms.
You passed on quietly and peacefully,
To join God on the farm.
I see you in my dreams my love,
You're happy and I'm not there,
We always think we'll have more time,
To love what we hold dear.
You have a place now in my heart,
Until we meet again,
But I'll still wish for one more day,
To love you well my friend.
