"For My Special Friend Copper"

I had a special friend , he meant so much to me,
But now he's gone, and I'm as lost as could be.

Some people think your friend must be human,
how wrong they are, my was a doberman.

His name was Copper and he was always by my side,
it didn't matter if I was happy or sad, he never asked why.

Now I know that dogs can't talk,
but I know he knew my every thought.

Just having him by my side,
licking my hand made me realize,

that he was more then just a dog,
he was my best friend from the first day on.

I'd tell him my problems, concerns, and fears,
and he'd look at me and raise his ears.

As to say "I understand, just talk to me and your pain will end."

He always looked forward to laying in bed,
with a blanket and pillow for his head.

I loved that dog, but everything changed,
he died and left me on January 15th.

What will I do without him, I long for him so.
I hope things get easier, but I know it will be slow.

My best friends gone, who will listen to me now?
There's no dog in this world that can replace my pal.

I've cried and cried wondering why,
he left me so soon , why did he die?

I know my Copper is in heaven right now,
Looking down at me with a frown.

You see Copper wouldn't want me to be upset because he's perished,
He'd want me to go on , and keep the memories I so cherish.

Copper I love you and will still talk to you each day,
we just won't be together with you in my arms, because now your so far

away. I'll never forget you , or all the things you did for me,
being my special friend as only YOU could be.
