    If it should be that I grow frail and weak,
    and pain should keep me from my sleep,
    then you must do what must be done,
    for we know this last battle can't be won.

    You will be sad, I understand,
    but don't let grief then stay your hand,
    for this day, more than the rest,
    your love and friendship must stand the test.

    We've had so many happy years,
    what is to come can hold no fears.
    Would you want me to suffer? So,
    when the time comes, please let me go.

    Take me where my needs they'll tend,
    only stay with me until the end,
    and hold me firm and speak to me,
    until my eyes no longer see.

    It is a kindness that you do to me,
    although my tail it's last has waved,
    from pain and suffering I have been saved.

    Do not grieve, it should be you,
    who must decide this thing to do.
    We've been so close, we two these years,
    Don't let your heart hold any tears

    Why oh why do they have to leave us . It's such a stab in our hearts . I don't think at this point I could live without my Ollie . It will be a close race to our ends.

    Hold your memories close, and know you did what she needed.

    I'm so very sorry for your loss. It's the hardest thing ever to be brave and do what needs to be done so they don't suffer more. Cherish your happy memories and they will keep Midnight close to your heart always. (((hugs)))

    Midnite would have been 15 years old on New Years Day. This was our first Christmas in 14 years without her. I took some video of her on the day I sent her to the bridge and I finally watched it on Christmas day. My heart still aches and my eyes are brimming with tears. :(

    I am so sorry for your loss. The poem was beautiful, did you write it?

    (((HUGS))) I spent my first Christmas without Bella this year, and it was so hard. My thoughts are with you.

    Thank you.

    No I didn't write it. It was an anonymous poem that I found online but was very fitting.
