I tremble at the thought of saying goodbye
I keep each memory close to the heart
As each tear dampens my cheeks
As the time draws near to say our final goodbyes
You have been a treasured friend
I tremble at the thought
The needle that will take you to rainbow bridge
Each dampened tear streak smudge
A tear and picture of you
A memory to treasure
As I keep the days and years we shared
Held tightly to my heart
As we wandered this journey of life together
My companion and friend
I love you
You will be missed
Thank you for the love and friendship shared
