I miss you Alfie so much
The long walks in the park not the same;
I go on my own now
And all I want is to shout out your name.
You've been my best friend since childhood
In fact we grew up as one;
When I left for school you waited
Till all my work was done.
You were with me when I learned
How to ride my bike on my own;
When we got lost in the woods once
It was you that showed me how to get home.
We've had tea whilst watching the telly
I can't sit there on my own;
I stay in the kitchen with mom now
Not knowing what to do with my bones.
I miss you Alfie
They come into our lives for such a short time-
a time we wouldn't trade not even for a dime.
Then before you know it the years have flown by
and then all of a sudden we're saying good-bye.
It wasn't that long ago we said our good-byes.
We held on to you tight as you closed your eyes.
Your spirit has flown home on the wings of a dove
into God's loving arms; in heaven above.
Over the days we've shed many tears
but the memories we have will live on for years.
We feel your presence and we know that you are near
You're keeping us safe and calming our fears.
We think about memories from years past
when you were young and strong and ran so fast.
We remember all the great times that we all had.
How you always made us happy never made us mad.
They were the best and happiest years we had.
We'll always look back on them and never be sad.
We look forward to the time we'll be together again
and we thank the Lord for such a great friend
Now you run and play up in Heaven above
cradled in God's arms covered with his love.
Playing by the Bridge waiting for the day
we come down through the meadow to the bridge to stay.
The love that you showed us we'll never forget
because to us you're one very special pet.
You're like a star in the dark of night
always watching over us with the Lord's light.
So now we take time to remember our best friend
who will always be with us even to the end.
We'll always remember you the way you were-
one big lovable, huggable pile of fur.

A Little Dog Angel
High up in the courts of Heaven today
A little dog-angel waits,
With the other dogs he will not play,
But he sits alone at the Gates:
"For I know my master will come," says he
"And when he comes, he will call for me."
He sees the spirits that pass him by
As they hasten towards the throne,
And he watches them with a wistful eye
As he sits at the gate alone;
"But I know if I just wait patiently
"That someday my Master will come," says he.
And his Master far down on the earth below,
As he sits in his easy chair
Forgets sometimes, and he whistles low
For the dog that is not there;
And the little dog-angel cocks his ears
And dreams that his Master's call he hears.
And I know when at length his Master waits
Outside in the dark and cold
For the hand of Death to open the gates
That lead to the Courts of Gold,
The little dog-angel's eager bark
Will comfort his soul while he's still in the dark.

Pet Loss Poems
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
I've lost my dog he's my best friend you see
He's been by my side for years;
Now he's gone and all I can do
Is stand and shed some tears.
I miss his funny look
That he gave me before a walk;
As if to say"You lazy old thing
Oh if only I could talk"
We've been on many adventures
Our walks are beyond compare;
Up hill and down dale all over
Finding another-I haven't a prayer.
I feel I've lost my arm
I feel like I've lost my leg;
Now there's an empty place
Where he used to sit & beg.
Patience was his virtue
He never got mad at me;
As long as I ruffled his hair
He was as happy as could be.
He knew everything of me
I told him all about;
As he would never shout!!
He kept me fit
He kept me sane;
Now nothing here
Will ever be the same.
