How special you truly were to me I really did
Our love was quiet between us but everyday did
Born such a tiny thing and not thought to
I had no idea Bun just how much you would
Hand raised from 10 days old, you were a
fighter from the start.
How you made it I’ll never know, it must have
been your heart.
Such a happy girl you were, always hopping
You would try and fool me by putting on that
So hard it was to get a kiss, I’d plea and I’d
At times it was all I could get, to get that
feathered tail to wag.
A stroke to your head, down your back, and the
flipping of your tail.
Hair would fall over your pretty face,
somewhat like a veil.
I would say I love you Bunny and hold you oh
You understood every word and never did you
In my arms you would stay until I set you
Sometimes I think I actually saw a tiny lil
Your favorite treat was jerky and oh what a
fuss you’d make.
And you loved to go to Gandma’s house and
ponder at the lake.
Grandpa taught you how to dance and give a
You were such a Sweetie and never would you
A treat you would get for just coming in the
I also had to watch you for you’d nip right
through my blouse.
Something about nipples made you silly as can
You would actually look for them and finally
one you’d see.
Always such a happy girl but could not jump or
But you would come a running, sometimes
falling on your behind.
I miss your lil rubs my Bun upon my foot you’d
Always slow and gentle, never rough or mean.
I knew you were my goofy girl, I would not
have you long.
But to know your time with me was short,
somehow was very wrong.
When your time came calling, I was so in
I wasn’t ready to let you go and face the
Honey you have taught me just what a short
life is worth.
You were one special dog from the time of your
Oh my lil BunBun, how I will miss you so.
The hardest thing I ever did was to let you
You were such a trooper Bun, so brave yet
Souls like you are special and oh so very
You must have come from heaven, to visit just
Everyone you ever met responded with a smile.
I hope you can forgive me Honey for causing
you any pain.
I would have never caused it had I known it
was in vain.
Although the pain I’m feeling now is cutting
like a knife.
I know I will hold you again my Bun, just not
in this life.
I love you so my HoneyBun, you’ll always be in
And one day soon I’ll see you again and we
will never part.
Until then my Sweetie I’ll be thinking of you,
my lil soldier girl.
I’ll pat your head and scratch your tummy and
give that tail a twirl.
So roam the heavens wildly Bunzy as you could
not do here.
I will save our memories in my heart so very
