" For Magnum "

May 9 1997


The rising sun a mourning breeze.

Awake I hear your constant wheeze.

A labored breath a wistful sigh.

A gentle kiss to say good-bye.

Your trusting eyes though filled with pain

My love for you is still the same.

Your body spent your face so pale;

A final swish of your golden tail.

My heavy heart it braves the end.

And saves a place for my best friend.
