This poem was meant for my greyhound friends, but applies to all rescued pets.


My beloved Cherry

Remember me when the sun shines, remember me in the rain,

Remember all our happy times, when I was free from pain.

Remember when you took me home, that very special day?
You said it was forever, you promised I could stay.

We had so much fun together, long walks, and cuddles too,
I never needed very much, as long as I had you.

Remember all those moments, the memories we made,
They'll help to keep you smiling, and my face will never fade.

I'll be with you for always, we'll never be apart,
Although you cannot see me now, I'm right there, in your heart.
