Benny by Susan / Your loving friend

When will this pain go away
I feel inside my heart
You were my very special friend
I loved you from the start.

You never asked for anything
But gave so much to me
Your loyalty and devotion
Was all too plain to see.

Your kennel stands there empty
Nearby your favourite bone
There is a deafening silence
In the place you knew as home.

As you lay down and closed your eyes
And slowly fell asleep
I told you how I loved you
And your memory I’ll keep.

You lay now in my garden
Beneath your favourite tree
May you forever be in peace
My devoted friend, Benny.


Forever in my heart,
