Gone but not Forgotten



Leroy



LEROY WAS QUITE A BOY DESPITE HIS STRIFE
HE WAS TALL AND STRONG AT ONE TIME IN HIS LIFE

SO UNFAIR TO BE LEFT STARVING, INJURED AND SAD
I KNOW FOR A FACT IT MADE MANY OF US BURNING MAD!

HE WAS TAKEN AWAY FROM HIS NIGHTMARE BY THE SHERIFF ONE DAY
AND BROUGHT TO THE RESCUE WHERE IN SPIRIT HE WILL STAY

HE WAS NOT WELL ENOUGH TO CONTINUE ANY MORE
IT WAS NOT FAIR BUT HE WASN’T KEEPING SCORE

HE LOADED PEACEFULLY, TIED AND WAS READY
EVEN THOUGH HE FELT SAD AND WAS A BIT UNSTEADY

HE UNLOADED AND LOOKED AT US AND WITH HIS EYES SAID GOOD BYE
IT WAS A DAY OF SADNESS AND A DAY TO CRY

HE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN THAT GREAT BIG BOY
HE BROUGHT US HAPPINESS AND LOVE AND A LOT OF JOY

LEROY KNEW HIS DAYS WERE NUMBERED
YET NEVER LET THE OTHERS FEEL ENCUMBERED

HE IS PRANCING AND DANCING TO THE BEAT OF HIS CHOICE
HE WANTS NO CRYING BUT INSTEAD TO REJOICE

HE IS NOW IN A PLACE WHERE HE WANTS TO STAY
HE KNOWS WE WILL ALL MEET UP AGAIN ONE DAY

WHEN WE MEET UP HE’LL GET A CLICK AND A PET
AND AWAY WE WILL RIDE INTO THE GOLDEN SUNSET

GOOD BYE LEROY
YOU WERE SUCH A COURAGEOUS BOY!
TAKE CARE FRIEND
