Ebon von Er Nast died today 03-30-2021
Six years and seven month we spend together
My Best Friend Died Peacefully In My Arms Today
Ebon von Er Nast
I lost a treasured friend today
The big dog who used to lay
His gentle head upon my knee
And shared his silent thoughts with me.
He’ll come no longer to my call
Retrieve no more his favourite ball
A voice far greater than my own
Has called him to his golden throne.
Although my eyes are filled with tears
I thank him for the happy years
He let him spend down here with me
And for his love and loyalty.
When it is time for me to go
And join him there, this much I know
I shall not fear the transient dark
For he will greet me with a bark.
I’ll keep your little photo
hung up on my wall,
And I’ll always remember you
As the very best dog of all.
Message he sent me!
I know that you must miss me,
By the tears rolling down your face.
But believe me when I tell you that,
I’m in a very good place.
There are meadows here to run in,
And plenty of rabbits to chase.
There are other dogs to play with,
To frolic with and race.
So please don’t worry about me,
My spirit feels light as can be.
There’s no more pain to plague me,
I’m young again and free.
And I’ll be watching over you still,
of that you can be sure.
I’m your canine guardian angel,
And my love for you remains pure.
