    DefaultLetting Go - The Final Gift of Love

    I wrote this in tribute to my Sammy and Maddie...

    The promise of a thousand tomorrows is gone
    One journey ended and another begun
    This one just for you

    For a lifetime my companion and best friend
    Now you travel alone
    I was left behind

    A heart heavy with sadness
    A mind full of memories
    At times clouded by tears

    I never wanted for you to take that journey alone
    Or at least a journey without me

    We were soul mates
    Few words needed to be spoken
    In order for our love for each other to be expressed

    Knowing glances, loving touches
    Conveyed all that words could not

    We understood each other
    Loved and respected
    Trusted, honored and revered

    I never wanted to say goodbye
    I always thought there would be a thousand tomorrows and then some
    Forever and one extra day

    One lifetime together would never be enough
    Not enough hours in any given day
    I wanted my forevers to all be with you

    I was not ready to say goodbye
    I do no think it is possible to ever be ready or prepared.

    I never thought I could let you go
    But even in your final moments you taught me one last lesson

    That when a love is as great and true as ours was
    When you love someone more than you love yourself

    Then you can let them go
    When staying isn’t fair or right

    I wanted you to stay for me
    I loved you too much to make you do that

    There were more angels in that room when we said goodbye
    More angels than in those thousands of tomorrows and then some

    And then you were gone

    At first it seemed gone forever – no part of what we shared
    Recoverable

    But in time I found your lasting gift
    Your love remained in my heart

    Your legacy of life and love now intertwined with mine
    You were never really gone

    You are the sunshine that peeks through the clouds on my darkest days
    You are the warmth the surrounds me in the chill of the night

    You accompany the smile that creeps across my face as the leaves crunch beneath my feet on a late Fall day

    You walk with me – sometimes sitting atop my shoulder, sometimes following in the shadows cast by the late day sun

    I find comfort in that
    And I will love you forever and for always

    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
