The mourners stood by the open grave, heads bowed in silent grief,

feeling the depth of their loss, yet knowing that death brought relief

from the suffering endured, uncomplaining and mute. They were glad,

through their tears, his last breath had been drawn, but unbearably sad.



No more walking the fields and the lanes in the afternoon sun

in quiet companionship. But they'd had a lifetime of fun

and love and life together; the memories of which they treasured.

Their beloved Sam, whose impact on their lives could be measured



by the weight of their grief, as they knew that the days were now gone

when he'd come to their call, and join in with whatever was on.

He didn't care what they did, just provided that he was part

of the family. He was; with his own special place in their heart.



He's immeasurably missed; the void he's left will never be filled:

he is gone. By the will of his Maker his body is stilled.

But the memories of him in their lives, they will never grow dim.

Fun-loving, sweet-natured, unconditional love; that was him.



He was their pet dog, rescued from a certain end as a stray.

Once home, he captivated their hearts in his own special way.

By being brown-eyed and happy, unquestioning, eager to please.

Beloved Sam, rest in peace, at last you are truly at ease.



A tribute to the pleasure Sam gave us. He was the most loving, sweet-natured dog we have ever had, and we still miss him, and always will.
