You've treated me so kindly
my Beloved earth Master and
there is no heart in all the world
that is more grateful for your kindness
than the loving heart of mine.
My spirit soars to the heavens because
of the patience love and understanding
that you have shown towards me
even when I was not on my best behavior.
Your voice was the world's sweetest music
as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail
when your footsteps fell upon my waiting ear.
When it was cold and wet
you made certain of my warmth and comfort
by providing me with a home full of happiness and love.
I ask no greater glory than the honor and privilege of sitting
at your feet for you are my god and
I am your devoted worshiper.
You kept my pan filled with fresh water
and you fed me clean food that I may stay well
to romp and play and
do your bidding to walk by your side and
stand ready willing and able to protect you with
my life should your life be in danger.
Beloved "Friend" the time has come
where this old world has seen fit to deprive me of my health
so as you hold me gently in your arms
the skilled hands of the Great Master will grant me
the merciful boon of eternal rest and
I will leave you knowing with the last breath I drew
my fate was ever safest in your loving hands.
