In memory of…

 

Tyson, 1995-2011
And now there is no gentle nudge with an intense “I love you gaze.”
Only hearts that are filled with many tears, remembering joy-filled days.
But an Angel did appear to me, and said ” please cry no more.”
God also loves our canine friends, He’s installed a doggy door.

Now thou art dead, no eye shall ever see,
