On The Death Of Lassie (Our Pet Lab) - Poem by Arti Chopra

I will never forget those eyes,
as we took you to death, s door,
twin pools of sadness and love,
a calm acceptance
a certain knowing,
so difficult a decision,
to see you suffer
or to let you sleep
to free you from pain,
or your suffering keep,
so much joy you gave us
so much love
we have to free you
from this monstrous grip of cancer pain,
WE are noone to play God,
but this is a decision sane,
and as you closed those lovely eyes,
I reminded myself, with blurring eyes,
you were free once again.....
and today as I stare at the flowers
adorning your grave
I remember the unfliching love and support
you always gave
your fragrance lives on
through this flower bed
what you gave us in steadfast love...
can never be left unsaid
