Yesterday and Today
 
In loving memory of Crosbie Woodstock-by Doug Woods


Our vigil it is over now,
 
We've laid our friend to rest.
 
His last days at our feet perhaps,
 
may have been our very best.
 
 
 
For many nights to lend a hand
 
beside his bed we've slept.
 
To provide him with familiar scents
 
his love and trust we kept.
 
 
 
He'd stumble blindly day and night
 
Each day would show him worse.
 
We'll never regret the days we spent
 
beside him as his nurse.
 
 
 
His tail had lost its cheerful wag
 
his recognition came quite slow.
 
His love and faithful loyalty
 
t'was an effort for him to show.
 
 
 
Yesterday, came too soon
 
a sadder day we'll never see.
 
In the sunshine and a familiar place
 
we helped to set him free.
 
 
 
Today we're feeling at a loss
 
As I thought we'd probably be.
 
I'd hoped it would have brought a sign
 
he's running happy and free.
 
 
 
He left with us a legacy
 
Of memories, joy and love.
 
I think just now he sent that sign
 
that he's dancing up above.
 
 
 
He also sent a message
 
As he would, it was his bond.
 
"No longer mourn or weep for me
 
as I, you must move on."
 
 
 
"Rejoice in all the happiness
 
We've had these many years.
 
I've shed my pain and reside with pals
 
for me please, no more tears."
 
 
 
We'll honor our best friend's wishes
 
lighter hearts we hope it brings.
 
But today we can't stop mourning
 
or put away his precious things.
