I'M HERE, I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep

I could see that you were crying, you found it hard to sleep

I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear

"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here".

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,

You were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.

 I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key

I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "It's me"

You looked so very tired, and you sank into a chair,

I tried so hard to let you know that I was standing there.


It's possible for me, to be near you every day...

To say to you with certainty, I never went away.

You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew,

in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over… I smile and watch you yawning

And say goodnight god bless, I’ll see you in the morning

And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide

I’ll rush across to greet you and we’ll stand side by side

I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see

Be patient, live your journey out, then come home to live with me!
