To Marcybee and Jean-Luc:
I, Flynn, stand by you now and I came to have a peep.
I can see that you are crying, oh Mom, please do not weep!
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
“It’s me, I haven’t left you, I’m well, I’m fine, I’m here.”
I was close to you today, and I watched you pour your tea,
You were thinking of the many times your hands reached out to me.
I have been with you every step today, and could feel you getting sore,
I long to take the weight from you, I wish that I can do more.
I am with you today, and will be with you tomorrow too.
I want to reassure you that you did what you had to do.
I watched as you walked towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said “It’s me.”
You look so very tired, as you sink into your seat.
Mom, never forget no matter where you are, I am sitting at your feet.
Please know that I am here for you each and every day,
I say to you with certainty, “I have not gone away.”
Rest in Peace Flynn!
