It hurts to see your eyes full of pain and haze
You still look to me with love
A pleading to at last rise above
The mortal shell was just a passing phaze
I say goodbye to you, my closest and best friend
My greatest responsibility to see your agony end.
But as I look, I see the pup chasing the ball
When did spring ever change to fall?
Gray creeps through your fur, each red hair in silver blends.
You ask me with eyes that barely see
To finally allow you to run free
away from the prison life has become
Valkrys beckons for you to come
Beyond the veil, across the bridge, beyond the sea.
My selfish heart wants you to stay
But how could I ask that when misery holds sway
To love so deeply I must let go
Before I do, I want you to know
You will be in my heart forever and a day
