P et of my heart.
E ver dear to me.
N ever any trouble.
N othing but company.
Y et very special to me.
Penny I love you more than you know.
I hope you understand all I’ve tried to show.
I hope you’ve understood every hug or touch.
You’ve been so very special and meant so very much.
So soon the time come, I ‘ll have to let you go.
I just had to tell you these things, so that you would know.
To have a better pet, I could not succeed.
You filled an empty spot and a need.
But when at last the time should come,
I have to say Good-Bye,
I’ll try to know you’re better then,
And have sweet memories when I cry.
I love you
For Peggy, to Penny by Amanda Joy.
