Farewell, Friend, Farewell

Helplessly I watched you die

Your sad expression seeming to say, “Don’t cry.”

You were the best friend I’ve ever had

And, your passing makes me feel so sad.

But, your big brown eyes looked at me

And, said, “This is the way it’s meant to be.”

All living things must come to an end,

And return to earth or cleansing fire

Where they began. To replenish the

Earth. That is my destiny, so do not

Cry for me, just say farewell, my friend.

Chong, a rambuctious Peke who didn’t realize she was a dog, was my constant companion for 9 years.
