Animal Stories and Poetry


You gave me the sunshine, you gave me your love.
You made me see others who’s life was so tough.
You gave me the strength in all of these years
To fight for what’s right, no matter the tears.
Then, as you grew older each day had its number,
But for someone like you it won’t be just slumber.
I held you and kissed you, and then you were gone.
Wherever you are may never be known.
The house now so empty, my dear special friend,
Of all that was you has come to an end.
Your spirit will always remain in my heart.
I love you so much, we’re never to part.
I went to the beach where you and I sat,
And asked the Ocean – have you seen her yet…
-Marion Churchill
