Looking into your eyes today, I knew it was time.
You told me without as much as a sound.
I could not fix this for you.
No matter how much I wanted to, needed to, I could not heal your heart.

I could help ease your suffering.
I could help take away your pain.
And as you crossed the rainbow bridge, I could hold your face in my hands and kiss your sweet nose so that you would know you were not alone.
You trusted me, at that very moment you trusted me to do what was right for you.
You trusted me to live up to my end of the bargain.

How could you give me that much responsibility?
I could look away and pretend I never saw the trust in your eyes.
Eyes that once sparkle, held no luster now as they stared into the distance.
It was time for you to go.
It was time for you to be at peace, for you to be whole and young and healthy again.
It was time for you to feel joy in your heart where pain now lived.

Time was never on our side, little more than a year did you bless my life with such elegance and grace.
But some how, in that brief moment of time, you taught me unconditional love, and then you taught me how to let go.
