Dedicated to everyone who lost their canine friend. It has been a day since you’ve been gone.
You lay there frigid, unmoving
Besides the doorway and
I thought it was just the heat
Or you were just playing dead…
The climate has been changing
Lately to varying extremes.
So I fetched and sprinkled you
With water to freshen you up a bit,
But you’re not moving at all…
As I stood there motionless,
A silent scream escaped my throat
As tears cascaded down my cheek.
How was I supposed to know this
Was the end of you, my friend?
I never imagined that this would
Be the day you meet your lonely end.
It’s just this morning you were
So gay, full of life and playing around.
But now you’re truly gone and
I should find a way to carry on.
Easy to say but diffcult to do,
For back in my darkest days you
Were there selflessly loving me,
Unfailingly cheering me up, making
Me forget all of my melancholy.
My loyal canine friend I’LL MISS YOU.
