In Loving Memory of Max

Max as a pup!

One night you came into my life 

like a sweet angel in disguise.

A black and white ball of fur

with the sweetest puppy eyes.


God surely must have known 

I needed someone like you.

So he sent you on a mission

to love me through and through. 


Now I had someone to care for

morning, noon, evening and night.

To love you with all my heart

make your days happy and bright.


In your own special little ways 

you made me forget my sorrow.

You made sure, I never felt alone

brought me strength to face tomorrow.


My faithful, loving companion,

your devotion to me unsurpassed.

For thirteen years you guarded me

nothing much in return you asked.


God gave me the greatest gift of all

when he sent you to my door. 

You became my very best friend, 

my savior, and oh, so much more.


But some things are inevitable 

even angel dogs grow tired and old. 

Our Lord told Max to return to heaven 

so he can rest his weary heart of gold.


No, please I can't go on without him

He's my greatest treasure. I love him so!

I'll be left with a heart that's broken, 

oh, how can I possible ever let him go?


As my heart filled with endless tears

God told me to be selfless and kind. 

Max had always given me his best

now we must give him peace of mind. 


We shall free his spirit from his body

which is worn out with so much pain,

so he can frolic in the heavenly fields 

as a happy and healthy pup again.


So the other night I held him in my arms 

as I gazed into his wise but tired eyes. 

I told him how much I truly loved him 

and then he left for the heavenly skies.


No words can describe this pain I feel. 

How will I find the strength to go on? 

To face each day without my friend 

shall be lonely now when he's gone. 


Though his golden heart stopped beating

he's now a happy pup in a very special place.

Frolicking and playing with his angel friends,

barking with joy as he angel rabbits chase.


Max, you've been my rock, my joy, my love. 

Thank you, God for sending him my way. 

I give thanks to my sweet, furry little angel, 

you made my life so much richer by the day.

Though life goes on without you
it will never be the same.
Thank you, my angel
I'll always love you.
