Actor Jimmy Stewart was an icon in the world of film and throughout his rich career he treated us with masterpieces such as “It’s A Wonderful Life” and “Vertigo.” Not only he made an impact in the movie industry, but he also took part in the World War II and the Vietnam War.
Those who knew him personally say that he was one of a kind; compassionate, caring, and emotional. A video of an episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” from 1981 in which Mr. Stewart is a guest proves all this to be true.
At one moment during the show, Mr. Stewart takes out a piece of paper and starts reading the most touching poem we’ve ever heard. One about the desolation that filled his life after his beloved Golden Retriever named Beau passed away.
The moment he understood his dog was terminally ill was one of the worst in his life.
Even years after Beau left the world, Mr. Stewart couldn’t get over the pain and the grief. He then decided to channel his intense feelings for his late pet through a poem titled “I’ll Never Forget a Dog Named Beau.”
Once he started narrating the touching words, we couldn’t help by shed tears of sadness. The poem spoke of all the great times the two friends spent together and of the emptiness that followed after the dog was forever gone.
Whoever has ever owned and lost a dog can relate to the the words of this great actor. I believe this ode that he shared with the whole world belongs to all the dogs who left this world too soon.
And as one person wrote, “In 4 minutes we understand why Jimmy was so great. He showed more feelings of emotion, love, and despair than any normal human does in a lifetime. Rest in piece”
