Bear Campbell by Amie

A pet is held so dear
this is true for my pet Bear.
For he came into my life as a young pup
to fill the void from a past Tuff.
My heart he did settle in
and for many years made me grin.
Although he had a habit to make a mess
I loved him none the less.
He made life a pure joy
he was my little boy.
As time went on he did gray
and slower was his way.
Near the end he never showed his pain of deterioration
he demonstrated nothing but his devotion.
For he was our little lamb
and part of who I am.
A pet is so dear
this was true of my beloved Bear.

He is deeply missed.
