I’ll always remember you as a lady who took the time,
to rescue a bereft animal caught in a bind,
In your riding boots and warm friendly grin you were a force to be reckoned with, a force for good,
The sheep-farm to me,
a walking route tried and true,
holds so many memories for me and for you.
Often a time we met you at the gate, my mother and I,
You’d always salute us and we’d reciprocate,
Midge you were a part of my childhood, unbeknownst to you,
a friendly neighbour and a dog lover too,
Times are hard and people grow sad but it’s important to remember there is always a way back,
Your journey does not end here no matter where you are,
with a family to love you, even if it’s from afar,
Your neighbours are still neighbours and though quiet we may be,
you’ll never be forgotten and will remain,
a part of our memory.
