You came to me a little boy
And never had a favorite toy
You marked the floors and the yard
Protected, loved and stood guard.
You barked and ran upon your land
Now you lie beneath it’s sand
A candle glows to light my way
So I can watch over you night and day.
As you lay sleeping, I walk memory lane
It helps to ease my heartfelt pain
Even the girls know something’s wrong
When I sing my Basset song.
I love you much but miss you more
Your paws are still heard on the floor
As the end for you was coming near
I hope you didn’t feel any fear.
I held your head and kissed your nose
In hopes you knew I was close
And when my time on this Earth is done
I’ll join you and once again we’ll have fun.
With all my love
