Elegy for Toby
by Donald Ray Burger

We hate to see you go, old guy
Although we know it's time.

Though sadness fills our hearts right now
We'll not forget good times.

And smiles will soon replace our tears
For joy is what you brought.

No better job could have been done
of filling up our lives.

So go in peace our golden friend
You've earned your final rest.

You could not have done a better job
It's time to sleep at last.
