Sleep, the final frontier

Sleep softly my Lovely,
Dream of peace and tranquility.
Sleep soundly, my Love
In a place of beauty and serenity.
Sleep gently my Darling,
Be enfolded in love everlasting.
Sleep deeply, my Dearest,
In comfort and warmth eternal.
Sleep safely my Precious,
Until I too can pass into your world.
bird  in hand

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Aw, So beautiful but so sad.

    • Don’t know what triggered it really, but the thought of ‘passing over’ in one’s sleep came into my mind as I was walking the dog.

        I Wish my dogs would pass on in their sleep, instead of me always having to take them to the vets to be put down! SL is v v old. It is on my mind. But hopefully not just yet!

      • All comes down to quality of life and our canine friends can surprise us. My uncle had always had 2 dogs and their GSD was getting on and they were waiting for the inevitable, so they got a puppy in order for their boxer not to feel lonely. Lady got a new lease of life and they had 3 dogs for about 4 years. I hope Maggie falls asleep one night not to awaken. It’s the ultimate I can wish for her.
