In Memory of a Beloved Pet

In Memory of Buddy Benson (Beloved family pet for fifteen years)

For fifteen years Buddy was in our lives, and on Easter Buddy passed away. He will be missed by all those who loved him. Below is a poem I wrote dedicated to my daughter who loved and raised Buddy from a puppy. Missy shared with him all her secrets, and he knew of all her heartaches, but most of all they enjoyed life together...

In Loving Memory for Buddy Benson

It is in your memory where I live now, as I run through greener pastures,

But I am always here to share with you all of life’s disasters.

Although you can not see me I remain always at your side,

To listen when you’re troubled, I know every time you cried.

I was loyal to you my master, but I could stay no more,

Though there is a wall between us, there is a crack, an open door.

And I enter like a gentle breeze, that will touch you every day,

So you can see my master, I never went away.

L. A. Hardt

Mrs Benson....wow ! Your blog is awesome! I am very impressed, being that I do well to e-mail or send a forward! Ha! The pics, graphics, text everything....you have a real talent for this! What a beutiful poem....& how sad. I am so sorry for the loss of your dog. Being the animal lover that I am...it's heartbreaking I know. I lost one of my cats, Skittles (I think you met her, when you all were at my house) a few years back & you never forget them or really get over losing them. I look forward to reading more of your blog in the future! You take care of yourself & nice hearing from you!
