A dedication to a best friend The following is a dedication to a best friend, or inspired by a best dog friend of mine named Happy. I do not care if anyone thinks I am silly for writing this, but this poem or whatever you can classify it as was inspired by him. He is resting now, resting peacefully. **** You came into my life For such a short time But it seemed like it was longer. You brought joy to my heart And laughter to my face. I never had a bad time with you. You were special Something of a blessing Your memories are so clear now. So vivid and true. They are like a window pane; Misty in the rain Clear in the sunshine. I gave a part of me to you And you took it Home with you. No one will ever fill up that space I dedicated to you. I have shed many tears I have said my final goodbyes But I will never forget you. I know you are sleeping Resting so peacefully. But your memory lives on just like you did. I never owned you Even though I have papers to show. I only borrowed you. God gave you to us And then took you back home. I have said my goodbyes So rest, my friend, I will see you soon. **** Thank you, God, for letting me, my grandmother, my dog Ozzie, and my cousin and mother, to be able to spend time with Happy. He was a precious thing. And...thank you, Happy, for making me laugh! You were a great thing. Goodbye, I love you. And thank you, everyone, for your prayers and kindness. Please do not take any offense on me, or treat me badly because of this or anything I have written today. This wonderful dog touched me in a way that deserves more than words can explain.
