Family Dedications ( Part One )

Written by Lady Jude

My son Carl

As the stars come out each night

On never ending cold nights

Before I lay down to sleep

I’ve got my friends company

Nightly I snuggle into my little teddy’s potbelly

Before I drift soundly off to sleep

Feeling comforted knowing Teddy’s guarding me

He remains loyal by my side

Kitty the cat sleeps at the end of the bed

Making the darkness of the night less scary

I’ve my two best friends protecting me

From the scary bogey man

When morning light first shines through my windows

The dark shadows of the night begin to hide

Teddy and Kitty have been my faithful loyal guards

You could never wish for two better friends



He arrived with a sadness in his heart

A wee unwanted terrier dog

No one had come to claim him at the dog pound

They were ready to have him put down

So we made a claim and named him Lucky

Because he came so close to his own death

We nursed his sad broken spirit

Quickly Lucky became our faithful companion

In time we all received his cold nose kisses

Being faithful, loyal and loving unconditionally

He was the best dog our family knew

Lucky you were a champion

My Mother

When the skies go grey

When I go through pain and turmoil

Whenever I needed a shoulder to cry on

You’ve always been a willing listener

A place to shelter from life’s storms

Whatever the daily weather

You always made my sunshine again

With an understanding chat

Your doors always open

To teach and to guide

Making my journey less complicated

Your warmth continues to enlighten my life

I’ll always find my way back home

Knowing your warm smile awaits me

There’s no other love like your love

Mother your the best

Simply the best

You made your life loving us

With gentle eyes that mirrored your soul

You’d only see the best in everyone

And you were loved my us all

You never hid behind a mask

Honesty was your quiet demure

Your door was always open

To whoever needed you

You brought sunshine into my life

Making sunlight warm my days

Whenever I needed you

You were always there

By lending an understanding ear

You’d chase away my blues

It’s all the caring advice you give

I’ve always listened to every word

When you hold me safe within your arms

I feel on top of the world

Giving us all your love unconditionally

Dad your simply the best father ever

    We love our pets, they are an extension of our family and they add so much richness to our lives. Their only faults, is that they have such short life spans.

    My family has the power to cause me the most hurt and worries (which is not often thank goodness), but they are also the source of my greatest joys. They have taught me more that I thought there was to learn. My life would lack much of its meaning without my kids, my brothers, my nephews, my Father and my loving Mother who is sadly missed.
    What a sincere and touching dedication to these chosen family members of yours. It’s always nice to feel appreciated and it’s even nicer when someone tells you how much you mean to them. Kudos to you Lady Jude, wonderfully written from the heart.
