In Loving Memory of Trevi

Thank you, my boy, my sweet, sweet boy, for all that you have given me. Your love, your heart, your every waking moment.
Things will never be the same without you. You were my first, but certainly not the last.
Thanks to you, I learned alot both about myself and about being owned by a dog. Never again will I own a dog like you.
I'm so sorry that I couldn't do more for you... But I know you'll forgive me...

Now run... Run like you did all those years ago, when your legs still obeyed you. Play like you've never played before.
We will all miss you, but we know you're in a better place.

No tears in the world can cover the loss. A big piece of my heart is missing, and has joined you on your journey.
Thank you again, until we meet again on the other side....
I love you. Forever.



Old dog in a locket
That lies next to my heart
I will always love you
As I did right from the start
You were right beside me
Through the darkest of my days
It was your kind and gentle nature
That made me want to stay
Now I hold you in my arms
Your breath still warm against my hand
Our hearts still beat together
And I wonder if you understand
Through the hours that I held you
Before the light did leave your soul
I knew a way to keep you
Forever in my hold

I snipped the hair from around your eyes
So I would always see
The beauty that surrounds me
Even in times of need
I snipped the hair from around your ears
So I would always hear
Music in the distance
To quiet any fears
I snipped the hair from across your back
To bring me strength in time of need
And the power of your essence
Would always be with me
I snipped the hair from around your heart
That beat in time with mine
So I would know that love would find me
At some distant time

And so, your life slipped out of mine
On a quiet spring like day
But I knew that a part of you
Old dog in a locket
That lays next to my heart
I will always love you
Even though we had to part

They say memories are golden well maybe that is true
I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you, a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place no one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
