Dear Old Dog
You made a place, here in our hearts
Where you will dwell, deep in our thoughts.
We loved you so, my furry friend
The memories will never end.
Our boy has grown into a man
And in this you have had a hand.
You gave him love and strength to stand
Through darkest storm or shifting sand.
The child is gone, to be no more
The teenage child, may try us sore
But though he walks through life alone
By his side you will always roam.
We love you Fred, you dear old dog,
We won’t forget, where you belong
With our sweet boy, you’ll always be,
Tomorrow and all through eternity.
