• Memories - My Wish

    If the day should come when I'm in pain,
    And you know I won't be well again,
    Promise you'll do what must be done,
    If this is the battle that can't be won.

    It'll break your heart, but please be kind,
    Don't let your grieving sway your mind.
    For this is when you'll let me see
    Just how much you do love me.

    Together we've had happy years
    The future now can hold no fears.
    Please don't let me suffer
    so when that days comes, please let me go.

    For my usual vet please will you send?
    But stay with me until the end.
    Hold me steady, speak to me
    'Till my once bright eyes no longer see.

    In time I hope you'll come to see
    It's the last kindness you'll do for me
    One more time please stroke my mane
    And know that I'll have no more pain.

    And don't be sad that it was you
    Who decided this was what to do.
    We've been such buddies through the years
    Don't let me be the cause of tears.

    You'll always see me graze now,
    with the sun upon my back
    Painful limbs won't tire me now,
    however long the hack.

    I live now in your heart and mind,
    a lovely place to stay.
    And what you have in memories,
    no-one can take away.
