Beethoven, Rest In Peace Sweet One


My deepest sympathy goes out to my friend Robin on the loss of her sweet Beethoven. He was the "keeper of his castle and of his brothers". He was only seven and his passing was very unexpected. Beethoven would be leaping into the air, at my glass front door, as Robin would pull into the driveway. Robin said, "He is the sweetest soul, that I have ever known......"
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Robin during this difficult time.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Robin♥
I stood by your bed last night
I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying,
You found it hard to sleep.

I whined to you softly
as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you,
I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast,
I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times,
your hands reached down to me.

I was with you at the shops today,
Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels,
I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today,
You tend it with such care.
I want to reassure you,
that I'm not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house,
as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you,
I smiled and said "it's me."

You looked so very tired,
and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know,
that I was standing there.

It's possible for me,
to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty,
"I never went away."

You sat there very quietly,
then smiled, I think you knew
... in the stillness of that evening,
I was very close to you.

The day is over...
smile and watch you yawning
and say "goodnight, God bless,
I'll see you in the morning."

And when the time is right for you
to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you
and we'll stand, side by side.

I have so many things to show you,
there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out
...then come home to be with me.

What a wonderful poem. It made me cry. Thanks for sharing. I did not know Beethoven. But I offer you my sympathies for your loss.
