Mourning Toni

By Jelena Zaric *JeZa*

Written after the euthanasia of Toni, the elephant


Dear Toni, Let your self go..

Warm hearts will guard you,
Your friends will guide you,

Step by step and start to flow--.
Sprinkle star dust and keep that glow.

Rest in peace dear Gentle Giant Heart,
Your death might be a new start--

Close your eyes, embrace new life--
No pain-- no chain--

Find your way--
With your loved ones you will stay--


In our minds, and in our souls,
Your death will be engraved.

You will never be forgotten,
No, You did not die in vain!

Dear Giant Gentle Heart,
Rest in peace!
