Siosalach’s {Shreddie} by Tamn & Family


If it should be I grow
frail and weak
And pain prevents
my peaceful sleep.
Then you must do what
must be done
When this last battle
can’t be won.

You will be sad I understand.
Selfishness might stay your hand.
But on this day
more than the rest
Your love and friendship
take the test.

We’ve had so many happy years
That what’s 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.
Hold me firm and speak to me.
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time you too
will see
It is kindness that you
do for me.
Although my tail it’s
last has waved
From pain and suffering
I’ve been saved.

Do not grieve it should be you.
Who must decide
this thing to do.
We’ve been so close
we two these years……
Don’t let your heart
hold any tears.
