Poems on Pet Loss

Words of Sympathy: It is sometimes very difficult to come up with words of encouragement and sympathy to tell someone who is grieving for a beloved pet.

For those of us who consider our pet a member of the family, the pain is intense. And while there are some who think grieving over a dog is just ridiculous, it is simply not true.

You're pet was a significant part of your every day life, always there to greet you, accompany you, and provide you comfort, joy, and unconditional love. So know, you have the right to grieve.

If you are a good friend of someone who has lost a beloved pet, please be patient and try to understand that they need this time. Provide them with love and support and a listening ear for them to express their feelings. And if you don't know exactly what to say, below find a list of warm sentiments and messages you can write to a grieving friend.

Words of Condolence
Sympathy Messages and Sayings

  • My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time

Helping a Grieving Friend

There are many ways you can help support a loved one grieving over their loss of a furry companion.


Do not stand at my grave and weep.

I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow,

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain,

I am the gentle autumn's rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush,

I am the swift uplifting rush

of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,

I am not there, I did not die.


I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.

I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.

I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.

All I have are memories and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is my keepsake, with which I’ll never part.

God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart !!!

Forever and Always ~ Author Unknown

Those we Love remain with us, for Love itself lives on.

 Cherished memories never fade, because a loved one is gone.

 Those we Love can never be, more than a thought apart.

 For as long as there is a memory, they’ll live on in our heart.

~ Author Unknown

The moment that you left me, my heart was split in two.
One side was filled with memories, the other died with you.
I often lay awake at night when the world is fast asleep
and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheek.
Remembering you is easy, I do it every day
but missing you is a heartache that never goes away.

I hold you tightly within my heart and there you will remain;
you see life has gone on without you, but will never be the same.
