Penny by Danette Minehart / Love,



If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep
Then you must do what must be done
For this, the last battle can’t be won.
You will be sad – I understand
Don’t let your grief then stay your hand.
For this day more than all the rest
Your love and friendship stand the test.
We’ve had so many happy years
What is to come can hold no fears.
You’d not want me to suffer so
When the time comes please let me go.
Take me where my needs they’ll tend
Only, stay with me until the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know, in time, you too, will see
It is a kindness you do for me
Although my tail, its last has waved
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don’t grieve that it should be you
Who must decide this thing to do
We’ve been so close through all these years
Don’t let your heart hold any tears.


I will always love and miss you Penny,
