    Default Poem By My Daughter

    My 10 year old daughter, Jennifer wrote this poem yesterday:



    MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN

    Rainbows, fields all around
    Musical, loud, any sort of sound
    A bark over here, a woof over there
    Black, brown or white, any sort of hair
    Poppies, daisies, loads of flowers
    Too many superpowers
    Kicking a ball, a game of footie
    On four legs
    No fancy dress
    Love and happiness
    Have you guessed?
    It is no quest
    Kicking a ball in a lovely place
    Walking around and in no haste

    Remember on four legs
    No fancy dress
    Please now guess
    It is no quest
    No more clues
    I have some news
    They are dogs
    In heaven above
    Kicking a ball
    Never to fall
    Waiting for owners
    While playing a match made in Heaven.

    Jennifer wrote this in memory of our dearly loved Declan, who went to the Bridge on 20th May and for Darcy from Canada.

    I cried when I read it.

    Jennifer,

    You are such a beautiful young lady, what a heart of gold you have to write such a verse.

    Someone has a very proud mum indeed.

    I must admit I cried when she presented the poem to me this afternoon.

    The loss of Declan is still so raw, after nearly 6 weeks, and the poem is a great comfort.

    At least he's playing football while he waits!

    What a wonderful poem! Jennifer must be a real joy. Thank you and Jennifer for sharing it. I am sure it brought you loads of comfort. It brought tears to my eyes too. It is always so hard to lose one of our pups. They are part of our family although not everyone understands that. But the folks on the board do. I would like to think of my pups who have crossed the bridge in a place just like Jennifer describes!

    Oh how beautiful I think it's wonderful when youngsters can express themselves so well in poetry.

    Jennifer obviously adored Declan and I'll bet he's looking down on her with a waggy tail and licky kisses.

    Take care Misty and big hugs to you all. It's bound to still feel raw after your darling boy - six weeks is nothing really .

    I don't understand anyone who doesn't grieve for their furbabies when they go to the Bridge, I think it hurts more than a human loss. xxxxx

    Tears, sniffing and blowing. What a lovely tribute to DeClan. Jennifer expresses herself so well and with such heart. Thank you for sharing such a personal and beautiful love story.
