thank you, all my friends

Would you know my name

If I saw you in heaven?

Would you feel the same

If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong and carry on

cause I know I dont belong here in heaven…

Would you hold my hand

If I saw you in heaven?

Would you help me stand

If I saw you in heaven?

Ill find my way through night and day

cause I know I just cant stay here in heaven…

Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees

Time can break your heart, have you begging please…begging please

Beyond the door theres peace Im sure

And I know there’ll be no more tears in heaven…

letting go of maggie

Monday, April 13th, 2009

No it was not easy but she’s not suffering anymore my dear darling Mag.
About 2 am this morning she woke me up with groans and lots of involuntary movement. It was like when dogs dream sometimes and their paws are moving but then this was pure distress. I knew it then when I saw her mouth foaming.It was tough for her but after an hour or so she calmed down and had biscuits with me. But her heart would just not give up. I comforted her during the rest of the night until the vet opened the doors. She died very peaceful and quick in my arms in the vets office after an overdose of anaesthetic .
The vet agreed with me that it was her heart and that there was nothing we could do for her except helping her over the threshold.
I can still see the day 14 years ago that she came into my life, We shared a lot of ups and downs together. I guess she’ll always be in my mind from now on.
I got the backhoe out after the rain stopped and made her a nice resting place next to Zeus in my front pasture where she loved to chase the rabbits.
