GOODBYE OLD FRIEND

I lost my dog this past week, (due to old age), and I am very sad.  For over 13  years she has my buddy, my pal, my confident and companion.  I miss her. I know I can never replace her, but I am a dog lover, so I am preparing myself to take in another rescue dog to love for as long as she is with me. 

For all of you animal lovers, who have lost a beloved pet, and know the extreme sadness of losing a part of your family, I hope this will give you some comfort:




GOODBYE OLD FRIEND

I will miss your soulful brown eyes
That wakens me at six a.m.
Your Howl when I do not rise.
My shout at you to scram

 You followed me from room to room
Making certain all is still okay
Stopped to nap each time at noon
Stayed next to me and did not stray

I miss you old friend of mine
 I know you would agree
You always made my life shine
Thank you for what you gave to me

So sleep well, my old friend
So sad you had to leave
I know that death is not the end
But for now I must grieve
