A Canine’s Elegy to the Rainbow Bridge

In the twilight of a faithful heart,
An ember flickers and departs.
A life well-lived, a bond so deep,
The memory of a dog to keep.

Four hundred words to paint a tale,
Of love and loss in every detail.
A master’s touch, a loyal friend,
A journey’s start, a tearful end.

Oh, noble hound, your spirit roams,
To greener pastures, far from home.
A final breath, a whispered sigh,
And wings take flight into the sky.

No more the sound of paws on floors,
Nor joyful barks at creaking doors.
Your fur, once stroked, now but a ghost,
A memory that lingers close.

In gardens past, you frolicked free,
A boundless joy, a dog’s decree.
With wagging tail and playful pounce,
A zest for life, each day pronounced.

Your gentle gaze, a balm to pain,
No greater comfort could one gain.
Through tempests tossed and trials faced,
A dog’s embrace did fears erase.

In shadows long, the sun now sets,
A golden hue, your silhouette.
The laughter shared, the tears we shed,
All etched upon our hearts, like thread.

And as you cross the Rainbow Bridge,
A flood of memories, a lifetime’s gift.
For in our hearts, your spirit stays,
A beacon bright on darkest days.

Oh, faithful friend, your spirit soars,
To realms unseen, through Heaven’s doors.
A lasting bond, a love that’s true,
In life and death, we’ll cherish you.

With words four hundred, now we weep,
A tribute to a love that’s steeped,
In life’s rich tapestry, entwined,
A dog’s farewell, forever enshrined.
