For Miss Scarlett

Rest your head, my sweet
And let your mind be clear,
Of all your doubt and all your pain
For having to leave me here.
The pain I'll face in
Will be hard to overcome,
But understand that I'll make it through
My sweet, my treasured one.
I'll miss your deep
and loving eyes
And the feel of your soft red fur
I'll miss the time I spent with you,
The wounds that only you could cure.
I'll never forget those
When it was only you and I,
And how we galloped under the moon
And counted all the stars in the sky.
Remember when I fell
Upon your spotted back,
And when I awoke you turned your head
And looked as though you'd laugh.
I remember when I'd brush
your long black tail
And complain that it was too thick,
But I'd give anything now to touch it
The feel of it was oh so slick.
You always took such
good care of me
And I took such good care of you,
There was nothing that I wouldn't sacrifice
Not a thing I wouldn't do.
And though now my heart
As I think about your face,
I know that you are now relieved of pain
And sleep now in a better place.
And when I feel lost
and so alone
And wish that you were here,
I'll close my eyes and breathe in deep
Knowing that you are near.
Remember this, my Baby
That no matter what I do,
I will always care, I will never forget
And I will always, ALWAYS love you.
"Dedicated in memory
of Miss Scarlett
who passed into the night on May 12, 2004."
