brown eyes filled with love and trust,
walked life's road upon the dust,
hand still strokes your silk soft head,
mind recalls the paths we've tread.
many nights curled up in sleep,
share the warmth, so safe to keep,
winter fierce, or summer sun,
my side, or off you'd run.
shared the best for all these years,
shared the laughter, and the tears,
grown together, you and I,
partnership, a heartfelt tie.
owe you much, so now I know,
if I must, I'll let you go,
I will know you're always near,
in my heart, your memory's here.
