Poem for tortoises .

Here is a poem I have written for my friend who recently lost  her Daisy and for all those who have lost a beloved tortoise...



You started life within an egg

and then you pushed out free.

You looked so tiny soft and new

Twas then you came to me.... 


I fed you well with lots of food

and you grew big and strong.

I never knew you'd have to go

and things would all go wrong....


I wish that you were here with me

and we'd grow old together.

But fates cruel hand had other plans

and I would see you never....


I loved you then, I love  you still

and even though you're gone.

I'll always have you in my heart  

where your bright light has shone.....
