She was my best friend, my everything
We went everywhere together.
We would go on adventures, some
exciting, some dangerous but always fun.
What would we find this time?
Green eyes and brown eyes
all aglow with mystery and excitement.
Buffy was the listener and silent,
always in thought, always there for me.
I would always do the talking, I could
tell her anything, she was never my judge.
When I was sad, she would sit with me.
When I cried, she was there, her head tilted
as though she understood the depth of my pain.
But then she would know exactly when to jump
up and be my little clown! She made me smile and
then laugh until my stomach hurt and the tears were
happy ones, once again. She knew me so well,
every mood, sad, happy,fearful, she knew them all.
We could never be separated, not ever.
One day she looked at me and told me with such pain,
that I would have to make a decision of love for her.
She told me with her beautiful brown eyes, that she
must leave me and I must let her go.
She looked into my eyes with such love and asked
for my help. She said she couldn't do it herself,
"This is where you must make the decision to help me go."
Buffy my friend, I love you with all my heart and
that is why I can help you go in peace and dignity.
I held her to the very end, my tears never ending.
I felt her little spirit leave, her little body went limp.
And to the heavens she went. I know she is with me,
always watching over me. I know she sent me
a very special friend like her, to make my pain
a little easier.
Now that special friend is looking at me and asking,
when it gets too painful, will you be there for me?
Oh God! Why did you make their lives so much
shorter then ours? Dog backwards is God, they
were graced with that special name.
Buffy Fly high, my little clown
Be ready to show my boo boo,
the way to the rainbow bridge.
Mommy, loves you.
