A Ferret’s Poem – as I go to the Bridge.
 

You’re giving me a special gift,

So sorrowfully endowed,

And thru these last few cherished days,

Your courage makes me proud.

But really, love is knowing

When your best friend is in pain,

And understanding earthly acts

Will only be in vain.

So looking deep into your eyes,

Beyond, into your soul,

I see in you the magic that will

Once more make me whole.

The strength that you possess

Is why I look to you today,

To do this thing that must be done,

For it’s the only way.

That strength is why I followed you

And chose you as my friend,

And why I’ve loved you all these years.

My partner till the end.

Please, understand just what this gift

You’re giving means to me,

It gives me back the strength I’ve lost

And all my dignity.

You take a stand on my behalf

For that is what friends do,

And know that what you do is right,

For I believe it, too.

So one last time I breathe your scent

And through your hand I feel,

The courage that’s within you,

To now grant me this appeal.

Cut the leash that holds me here,

Dear friend, and let me run,

Once more a strong and steady ferret,

My pain and struggle done.

And don’t despair my passing,

For I won’t be far away,

Forever here, within your heart

And memory I’ll stay.

I’ll be there watching over you,

Your ever faithful friend,

And in your memories I’ll run.

A young ferret, once again.
