Melvin Martian

Melvin

Today a little heart stopped beating
Today he was laid to rest
Today another loved fish makes his way
To the warm waters below rainbow bridge.

Melvin was an odd ball, his colour very unique
His wiggle butt dance so great
He "scary face" inflicted only laughter
and his nests were nests to be proud of.

Rest In Peace Melvin.

Aww, Abby, I'm so sorry you lost Melvin. :( He was a beautiful, beautiful guy. You're going through a bit of bad luck right now. I will cross my fingers that things clear up for you. And your poem is beautiful, I'm sure Melvin is very touched by it.

I'm sorry Sam :(
What happened? I lost a little one today too, Drama Queen my first (well her sister was also my first - got them at the same time). I'm gonna miss her.
I'm glad you got a new guy though to shake you outta the blues (I got a new girl ;P).
RIP

What a beautiful fishy he was. Sorry that you lost him Abby :( :(

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
