A Rainbow has torn through my heart. My King, my Love has passed away, the angels came for him. I know he will wait for me, when my time finally comes he will be my Angel. Mummy found a poem for me, to try and help with the pain, to explain why he had to go. I will forever miss him, my wonderful JesseJ.
I will lend you a pup
I will lend to you for awhile, a pup, God said,
For you to love him while he lives and mourn for when he's dead.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three
But will you, 'till I call him back, take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you; and should his stay be brief,
You'll always have his memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return
But there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn.
I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true
And from the folk that crowd life's land, I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come to take back my pup again?
I fancied that I heard them say "Dear Lord Thy will be done",
For all the joys this pup will bring, the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness each and every day
And for the happiness we've known, we’ll forever grateful stay.
But should you call him back much sooner than we've planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.
If, by our love, we've managed, your wishes to achieve
In memory of him we loved, do help us while we grieve.
For when our faithful bundle departs this world of strife,
We'll have yet another pup and love him all his life.
