    Time to Say Goodbye


    Sometimes pets know before their human parents do when it is time to go. God calls them to His house and they listen, but their people don't want to believe it and deny their pets reached the point of no return. If you and your pet are in this situation, read these poems and think about them. They are requests by pets who are suffering and get that call from God.

    THE LAST BATTLE

    If it should be that I grow weak
    And pain should keep me from my sleep
    Then you must do what must be done
    For this last battle can't be won

    You will be sad, I understand
    But do not let grief stay your hand
    For this day, more than all the rest
    Your love for me must stand the test

    We've had so many happy years
    What is to come can hold no fears
    You don't want me to suffer so
    The time has come, please let me go

    Take to where my needs they'll tend
    But please stay with me to the end
    To hold me close and speak to me
    Until my eyes no longer see

    I know in time you will agree
    It was a kindness done for me
    Although my tail its last has waved
    From pain and suffering I'm saved

    Please do not grieve that it was you
    Who had this painful thing to do
    We have been so close all these years
    Don't let your heart hold any tears

    MAKING THAT FINAL DECISION

    You're giving me a special gift,
    So sorrowfully endowed,
    And through these last few cherished days,
    Your courage makes me proud.

    But really, love is knowing
    When your best friend is in pain,
    And understanding earthly acts
    Will only be in vain.

    So looking deep into your eyes,
    Beyond, into your soul,
    I see in you the magic, that will
    Once more make me whole.

    The strength that you possess,
    Is why I look to you today,
    To do this thing that must be done,
    For it's the only way.

    That strength is why I've followed you,
    And chose you as my friend,
    And why I've loved you all these years...
    My partner till the end.

    Please, understand just what this gift
    You're giving, means to me,
    It gives me back the strength I've lost,
    And all my dignity.

    You take a stand on my behalf,
    For that is what friends do.
    And know that what you do is right,
    For I believe it too.

    So one last time, I breathe your scent,
    And through your hand I feel,
    The courage that's within you,
    To now grant me this appeal.

    Cut the leash that holds me here,
    Dear friend, and let me run,
    Once more a strong and steady dog,
    My pain and struggle done.

    And don't despair my passing,
    For I won't be far away,
    Forever here, within your heart,
    And memory I'll stay.

    I'll be there watching over you,
    Your ever faithful friend,
    And in your memories I'll run,
    a young and frisky dog again.

    May I Go Now?

    May I go now?
    Do you think the time is right?
    May I say good-bye to pain-filled days
    And endless lonely nights?

    I've lived my life and done my best.
    An example tried to be.
    So can I take that step beyond
    And set my spirit free?

    I didn't want to go at first,
    I fought with all my might.
    But something seems to draw me now
    To a warm and loving light.

    I want to go, I really do.
    It's difficult to stay.
    But I will try as best I can
    To live just one more day.

    To give you time to care for me
    And share your love and fears.
    I know you're sad and so afraid
    Because I see your tears.

    I'll not be far, I promise that
    And hope you'll always know
    That my spirit will be close to you
    Wherever you may go.

    Thank you for loving me.
    You know I love you too.
    That's why it's hard to say goodbye
    And end this life with you.

    So hold me now, just one more time
    And let me hear you say,
    Because you care so much for me,
    You'll let me go today.

    Time to Go

    The time has come, I think you know
    The Lord is calling, so I must go

    I love you so much
    I wish it wasn't so
    I wish I could stay
    I don't want to go

    You're the best family a dog ever had
    So kind and gentle, never mean or mad

    I'll never forget the day that we met
    I was so lucky to become your pet
    You opened your door and showed me your heart
    I'll never forget you; we'll never part

    You loved me and cared for me over the years
    You taught me everything and took away my fears

    The Lord is calling; now I must go
    But before I go I want you to know
    I know it hurts to lose a friend
    But I'll always be with you even to the end.

    I understand that. I wish I knew them 11 years ago.
