My dog is gone, yet he is still here
watching me cry, making me smile.
He joined the other ghosts
and there are many -and more to come.
Mourning and grieving, laughing sometimes
remembering him young and old -just yesterday.
Love never dies, it stays with us
a comforting thought, nothing is ever lost.
Quiet for the first two weeks,
now I feel like talking and sharing.
Emotions so fragile, mood all over the place
One minute up, the next down again.
Last night we laughed, told stories
about all of them, who we have lost.
Our four-legged friends are part of us
imprinted in our hearts, cherished forever.
