Exclamation my best friend just died June 23 2012 i need help finding the perfect poem

My horse Cody was my best friend, he was a blind barrel racer that lived a long life and was close to 30 years old. He fought to stay with me but his body couldn't last any more. But yet he wouldn't give up. So sadly the Vet had to come to put him to sleep. As I cried, kissed him hugged him and held his head in my lap. I told him how much I loved him, promised I would never give up on him, I told him he was the best horse in the world, how he was such a good boy, and it was alright that he goes, then he took his last breath. He was my best friend, my secret keeper and the best listener id ever met! He always talked to me when he heard me and I will miss that but I need your help finding the perfect poem for my tattoo in his memory. So please help!

R.I.P Cody I will always miss you and you will forever be in my heart!

How long a poem?

I saw a beautiful memorial tatto, a beautiful horseshoe, with the horses name in script on it, it was lovely, clean lines, elegant, easy to read.

Sorry i'm no help with a poem, but I do want to say i'm sorry you lost Cody.

I am so sorry.

Was he ever shod, and if so do you have his shoes that can be reduced down to tat size?

I am so sorry, I know the heart break you must be going through.
There is a poem that has the lines
"If tears could build a stairway, and heartache build a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you back again."
There are more lines so if you put part of that in a google search you could probably find the whole poem.
Sending hugs to you.

I Only Wanted You

They say memories are golden
Well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
No one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway
And heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
And bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

I used this one for my little guy

As my candle, burning bright
Sends shadows off on this dark night
It offers peace, and hope and love
To the horses dancing up above.
My prayers and thoughts will help them find
Beloved friends they left behind.
So they may comfort us in turn,
And thus it is my candle burns.

With quiet tears, lovingly shed
I hear the horses, overhead.
Their pounding hooves are thunder stirred,
For another friend has joined the herd.

I used this piece of Trading Yesterday's "Shattered" on a sentimental plaque, when one of our old studs burned in a fire last year with his new owner. Maybe you could find something in it too.

And I've lost who I am, and I can't understand.
Why my heart is so broken, rejecting your love, without, love gone wrong, lifeless words carry on.
But I know, all I know, is that the end's beginning.
Who I am from the start, take me home to my heart.
Let me go and I will run, I will not be silent.
All this time spent in vain, wasted years, wasted gain.
All is lost, hope remains, and this war's not over.
There's a light, there's the sun, taking all shattered ones.
To the place we belong, and his love will conquer all. [x2]

Yesterday I died, tomorrow's bleeding.
Fall into your sunlight

I'm so sorry for your loss.
