We grieved this moment the first time we laid eyes on you.
We knew your love,
We knew what makes your tail wag,
We knew the joy you brought into our hearts,
And we knew we couldn't keep you forever.
Our dearest Lucky, you are finally at peace.
You have fetched every ball and licked every face,
But, today you have finished the race.
We hope in your shortened time we lived with you in grace.
We met your every need and held your paw through every vet trip,
With physical time and sponsorship.
To the paw prints on our hearts, you give us the desire to begin again.
Each dog begins our story anew till my heart is covered in tracks from you.
These tracks tell our stories and hold sweet memories,
Till one day we are sitting together again beneath the breeze and the trees.
