Forever Glow

Forever Glow

A Poem by butterfly

For a beautiful shepherd dog, Percy.

Percy is a dog with a heroic soul
Because of him Medusa has been slayed
All the intruders were instantly turned to stone
The power of his love melted all the crazy away
So now God came and took his pain
Took Him in His arms to a heavenly place
He doesnt go alone
Because of love we will never part
The love that has been made will forever glow
Even on the darkest day
Or even when there is snow
Nothing can keep the memory of Percy's love away
Gentle spirit so brave
Maybe there was so much pain
Not much did he complain
Only a cry at night
He liked the Christmas tree lights
His family kept it up all year
So that it could calm the fear
Now they wrapped him up in a blanket
in a sad ceremony so sacred
the vet scooped him up
so small had this large shepherd dog become
the body frozen, numb, the pain drips out
Its a weird kind of healing now
I cried at work
Suddenly all the Christmas lights went out
For a moment I was in this space of hurt
I thought to myself its just a dog now
But Percy is more like a cure
A heroic soul
For him, medusa has been slayed
his mission complete, his life whole
I am grateful for the days
I am thankful for the memories made at my home
I wish I was truly a princess of power who could heal your bones
All of us are only mortal you know
I am told he doesnt go alone
because of love we will never part
always right here in my heart
The love that has been made will forever glow.
