THE LEGACY

When humans die, they make a will
To leave their homes and all they have
to those they love.
I, too, would make a will if I could write.

To some poor wistful, lonely stray
I leave my happy home,
My dish, my cosy bed, my cushioned chair, my toy.
The well loved lap, the gentle stroking hand,
the loving voice,
The place I made in someone's heart,
The love that at the last could help me to
a peaceful painless end
Held in loving arms.

If I should die, Oh do not say,
"No more a pet I'll have,
to grieve me by it's loss"
Seek out some lonely, unloved dog
And give my place to him.
This is the legacy I leave behind -
'tis all I have to give.

that was sweet...I do believe if our dogs could talk thats exactly what they'd say.
I couldn't agree more. They wouldn't want us to be sad any more than we'd want them to grieve forever if we were gone. Nice poem, got me all teary, but in a good way. :)
