DON'T GRIEVE TOO LONG

By Jan Horn

Don't grieve too long for now I'm free
I've followed the path God set for me
I ran to Him when I heard His call
I wagged my tail and left it all.

I could not stay another day
To bark, to love, to romp or play
Games left unplayed must stay that way
I found such peace; it made my day.

My parting has left you with a void
Please feel it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, your laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too shall miss

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow
My life's been full, you've given so much
Your time, your love and gentle touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief
Lift up your head and share with me
God wanted me; He set me free!!

From Smitty's Mom:

My heart is broken , I am going to miss that little boy more than you can imagine. It wasn't even sudden. He had been going downhill for quite a while; different things going wrong. Aging does bad things to us all, especially small helpless creatures who cannot help themselves and depend on us for their care
