Holly was a kind-hearted and gentle creature who brought a lot of joy and happy days in my Aunt Pat and Uncle Tony's life. Sadly, she took ill and is now in a better place.
This is for Holly. You are missed so much.

For Holly.

A gentle creature she was

Who walked with soft paces
A loving heart ever beating
For her caring family
A soul so pure and clear
She could cleanse away all pain.

Her soft brown eyes
Innocent like a doe's

Her ears so soft and perky
Her gentle demeanour
Her warmth radiated life

To the coldest of days.

And now she's sleeping

Suddenly He took her from us

Left behind wet eyes

And pained hearts-
The price of love

That we pay.

A better place she went to

Frolicking and gleeful
She looks down from above
Woofing at our sobs
She's got Casi with her
Who's more than happy to play.

Up and down they bound
The polished streets yonder
A friendly birdie chirps
A loving dove croons
And perhaps in their midst
My Betsy and Robin too.

She swirls around us in the wind
Teases in the rustling leaves
Brightens life in the sunrise
Her presence lingers on
Her legacy of love

Lives forever on.
