LAETICIA by Geraldine / Geraldine


You knew them all
Your little friends
who went before,over the bridge
How I would have wanted
To have you forever.
The day of the last kiss came
Tears are falling as you closed your eyes.

Such a happy contented dog
You would run into the woods
Your eyes shining with excitement
Every day held magic for you
how you would play
I hear them still
Those lively joyful barks
An eternal song, stirring in my soul.

So many of you on this other side
forever echoing in my heart.
I lift my eyes and search the night sky
To see your name written
In the luminescent glow of the stars.


In the garden of memory we will meet each day,
