The Parting.

With soft black ears and long white tail
You stood there looking so very frail,
So full of love and eager to please
With a lick on my face and a paw on my knees.

Majestic and tall you stood by my side
my heart was filled with love and pride.
When you have to go my heart will ache
Our friendship soon I'll have to break.

I'll kiss your face and wave goodbye
As I turn to leave I'll start to cry,
Then off you'll go to a brand new start
And take with you my broken heart.

I know you'll be happy, you'll feel so glad
To have someone that loves you - a mum and a dad,
They'll give you a cuddle and love you the same
Good luck my "Big Boy", be happy again.
