Memories of a special best friend.
Sonny

We lost our best friend yesterday,
God came and carried him away.
While here he never did complain,
‘Though at the end he was in pain.
We were his pack, he yearned to stay
To guard us for another day;
We had him since he was a pup
And trained him during growing up
To be our loyal, steadfast friend ...
Protect and guard us ‘til his end.
The smartest dog I ever knew,
And brave, courageous, noble too.
I know this grief that makes me sad
In time will die, and I’ll be glad.
We had him for a little while
To make us laugh, to make us smile.
Perhaps when grieving’s time is up
We’ll get ourselves another pup.
But though he’s brave and smart and funny,
There’ll never be another Sonny.
