IN MEMORY OF SABRE CERRETA
(January 18, 1992 - November 17, 2000)

Sabre

EYES ARE THE WINDOW INTO THE SOUL

When first I looked I saw eyes of fear
As we grew you attached so near 

Eyes of respect, then trust, then love
By now you fit like a well-made glove

As time passed on you evolved and grew
Those eyes now said there was no other like you

Regal and royal are words we choose
Yet these words are too few to use 

Dignity, distinction, uncannily smart
These fine words are only the start 

A brother, a leader, a wise man - it's true
Yet all these words do little justice to you

These eyes belong to the child I chose
These eyes belong to my child in dogs’ clothes 

Eyes of love so deep, so rare
Eyes of love I can no longer share 

Once in a lifetime this pain I will bear
For these are the eyes of a soul so rare

Our souls are one this joy I claim
But without those eyes I will never be the same
