"Aslan"
~Gone from our life but never absent from our heart~

IF I SHOULD GROW FRAIL

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain does 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 you 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 till 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 now 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.

Aslan

Det var så fruktansvärt att behöva ta farväl
av dig, så mycket tidigare än jag hade planerat.
Jag hade hoppats på så många år tillsammans med dig min prins...
Men ibland måste man sätta sina egna känslor väldigt långt åt sidan.

Aslan fick muskelförtvining och hur jag än försökte bygga muskler så uteblev resultatet.
Hans sista två veckor i livet åldrardes han väldigt fort.
Beslutet var lätt att fatta eftersom jag inte ville att han skulle lida mer
än han redan behövt göra,
men svårt för att han var min prins...
min alldeles egna pyrreprins.

Min lille drummelpelle, min dreggelgubbe och myspelle.
Saknar honom oavbrutet och hela tiden,
hjärtat värker och bakom ögonlocken bränner tårarna.

 Man lär sig någonting av allt som sker och jag har lärt mig att uppskatta
mina djur ännu mer än vad jag gjorde tidigare.
Behandla dina djur och din omgivning som om det var er sista dag tillsammans,
glöm inte att visa hur mycket du älskar dem, och vad de betyder för dig.
Säg ofta att du älskar dem för du vet inte när er sista dag tillsammans är.

 

May I Go Now?

May I go now?
Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye to pain filled days
and endless lonely nights?
I've lived my life and done my best,
an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond
and set my spirit free?

I didn't want to go at first,
I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now
to a warm and loving light.
I want to go
I really do.
It's difficult to stay.

But I will try as best I can
to live just one more day.
To give you time to care for me
and share your love and fears.
I know you're sad and afraid,
because I see your tears.

I'll not be far,
I promise that, and hope you'll always know
that my spirit will be close to you
wherever you may go.
Thank you so for loving me.
You know I love you too,
that's why it's hard to say goodbye
and end this life with you.

So hold me now just one more time
and let me hear you say,
because you care so much for me,
you'll let me go today.
