The companionship of a beloved dog can bring a special joy, and the pain of parting can cause immense grief. A beautiful and moving poem, I Cannot Lie By Your Fire was written after the death of the author's own bulldog, and sensitively provides comfort and understanding, helping to bring reassurance and peace following the death of an animal friend.
The message of hope and consolation within the words are there to remind all who are grieving of the happy memories that will live on after the pain of bereavement has passed.
Illustrated throughout, Nick Bland's sensitive and moving drawings enhance the mood of the poem, making I Cannot Lie By Your Fire the perfect book for someone who has lost a beloved friend. It offers sympathy and help at a time when words may not seem enough.
