Today I said good-bye, 

Though the tears you cried, 

They cut me deep inside. 

I longed to comfort you as you cried. 

Today I said Good-bye,

Though you may not understand why. 

It has become my time, 

To pass from this, loving life. 

Today I said Good-bye,

Felt your tears, as you held me and cried. 

Heard your pleas and questions of why. 

For me you were my life, I beg you do not cry. 

Today I said Good-bye,

Grieve not for me, It was a wonderful life. 

My years spent lovingly at your side. 

A life I lived with beaming pride. 

Today I said good-bye, 

In spirit I shall remain at your side. 

Remember me youthful, not as I died. 

Tell stories of me, of the love I did abide. 

Today I said Good-bye

A short full life, 

That is what I leave behind. 

Memories comfort you, until I am at your side. 

Today I said Good-bye

I cannot tell you why, 

Though I’ll wait just over the bridge of life. 

To meet you, and dry the tears you’ve cried. 

Today I said Good-bye 

Four fuzzy paws stilled by age. 

Whiskers wet with tears you gave. 

Remember me happy, lovingly in your day’s.
