Poem for my Sephi

As you may have read in my previous post, my dog Sephi was not doing too well. I am very sad to say that on Wednesday I had to let her go. Her illness was sudden and severe and there was very little chance of recovery. It was hoped that her treatment she received Monday evening would give her some time but it only gave her a half a day where she could at least get up and move around. But she still wouldn’t eat and she only moved around when she had to go potty or get a drink of water. By Tuesday night, she was getting worse again and by Monday it was obvious that she was suffering. Letting her go was very difficult and I miss her terribly. A friend of mine sent me a poem by an anonymous author and I wanted to share that with you here:

A Special Place 

You have a special place, Dear God 
That I know you'll always keep. 
A special place reserved for dogs, 
To peacefully fall asleep. 

A place with fluffy pillows, 
And a yard for hiding bones, 
With maybe a little babbling creek, 
That rushes over stones. 

With wide green fields and flowers, 
For those who never knew 
Of running, playing freely 
Under sky of perfect blue. 

Lord, I know you keep this special place, 
And so, to you I pray 
For one oh so special dog 
Who came to you today. 

She was full of strength and love, 
And so very, very wise. 
The puppy look she once had, 
This morning left her eyes. 

She will be dearly missed, Lord, 
This special love of mine. 
But now, she will romp and play 
In your land that's so divine. 

Speak to my baby softly, please 
With a warm hug and hello. 
She’s a special gift to you, Dear Lord 
From me - who loves her so.
