• We've roamed the wild country
    My beautiful yellow eyes,
    Side by side we've hunted
    Shadows dancing on northern skies.

    There have been times of plenty
    We were content and serene,
    Peacefully sleeping
    Dangers few and far between.

    We've also known much hunger
    Ribs protruding from each side,
    Mournfully we howled
    When our starving cubs had died.

    And then there was our first winter
    Romping thru the glistening snow,
    Tasting each crystal snowflake
    Falling gently to and fro.

    Ah my dear, sweet yellow eyes
    I've known no greater love,
    Without you, I am nothing
    Our wild souls are one.

    And now you lay there dying
    Steel jaws upon your frame,
    Life's blood slowly seeping
    I whimper your sweet name.

    Helpless, I watch you struggle
    Chest heaving with labored breath,
    Steel jaws clenching tighter
    Winds whisper the song of death.

    The blood has now stopped flowing
    I know the time is near,
    And you will forever leave me
    My love, my life, my dear.

    And now my world is silent
    Your struggles now have ceased,
    I lay my head upon you
    And know you are at peace.

    Perhaps your soul has lifted
    To skies where eagles soar,
    And there you'll greet your brothers
    To run with them forever more.

    And someday I shall find you
    In the heaven's so far above,
    And when our wild soul's unite
    There'll be no greater love.
