The loss of you haunts me
As well a lesson understood
And my heart aches
Because you were just so good.

You brought much joy
And of course frustration too
And you filled our hearts differently
Just by being you

And when we had to let you go
Life didn’t stop
And knowing that seemed cruel
But we are all merely a drop

Life must go on
But it will never be the same
I miss all your noises
And the way I said your name

And I’ll see you again
And I’m glad you are with Lady and more
But it doesn’t make now easier
Or the loss something to ignore.

My little old man was the best
Even when at his worst
Henry was the perfect dog for our family
And I’m glad Heaven gave him to us first.
