You were faithful to the end
Thank you for always having my back
We walked miles together on many a track
Through the briers and the mud
You were my best bud
Your bark in the patrol unit so loud
It was obvious being on the job made you proud
I thank you for your service my friend
Now in your final rest, your watch is at the end.
