 Author ~ Sammie Klaehn

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
 I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.
 I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
 "It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

 I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
 You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.
 I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore.
 I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

 I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.
 I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there.
 I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
 I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said " it's me."

 You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
 I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
 It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
 To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
 You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
 In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

 The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
 and say "good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."
 And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
 I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.
 I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.

 Be patient, live your journey out...then come home to be with me.



With respect Phil

G'day Dennis. My thoughts and condolences.
My little companion, note 14, was diagnosed a few years ago with a death sentence disease.  Every lump and hiccough I think "this is it! " She is still kicking on bit i know that won't last forever.
If you don't feel the loss of that unconditional love,  then you are a cold bastard.
Take care.
Phil, beautiful poem.  Got me teary as well. 
Kind Regards, Barefoot Dave.
Reunited with my old mate, RFSV 51 680, 'Sleazy'!!

Gone:'91 RFSV, '88 Truck Carryall 48 358. Both cared for by REMLR members.
