72. Saying goodbye to my sweet Sam. RIP Sweet Bibi

If it should be I grow frail and weak
And pain prevents my peaceful sleep
Then you must do what must be done
When this last battle can't be won.
You will be sad, I understand
Selfishness must stay your hand.
But on this day, more than the rest
Your love and friendship take the test.
We've had so many happy years
That what's to come can hold no fears.
You'd not 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.
Hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time, you too will see
It is a kindness that you do for me.
Although my tail it's last has waved
From pain and suffering I've 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.
