When Time Runs Out

All the love in the world can’t save you, all the medical technology can’t save you, when God wants you, it is time to go. And so it is with great sadness and sorrow that I had to make that dreaded decision to put down our beloved Lexie. She was not only my companion for almost 11 years, but also of all of our employees. Lexie was our mascot and protector and will be greatly missed by all.

If it should be that I grow old and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done
For this – the last battle – can’t be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don’t let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn’t want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where my needs they’ll tend,
Only, stay with me until the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don’t grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do.
We’ve been so close, we two, these years,
Don’t let your heart hold any tears.
