My eyes have cried too many tears this year,
My heart aches from 2 good-byes so very near,
First, my husband – his absence so deep and wide,
Now, our sweet Mia. is not here to protect and guide.
So run on, dear Mia, along Daddy’s side once more,
Give him my love, and be his friend as you were before,
You were our dog, a good and faithful one to the end,
I will miss you til it is my time to Heavenly ascend.
