Ode to My Furry Friend

Rising above the clouds

to my eternal home

feeling excited and sad

for leaving you alone

Now in Heaven

looking upon your tears

remembering the times we had

oh, those were wonderful years

I am always with you

brushing against you in the wind

hugging you with the leaves

my barking heard in the songs of the wren

Giving kisses with the rain

resting quietly against your knee

enjoying the smells of treats

loving your smile with glee

Eternity is upon us

running and laughing again

time apart is an illusion

for with love there is no end

  1. This hits close to home. It has been years since I have had a dog. Losing the last one was such a crushing blow, I have never considered getting another… You brought him to mind here, in a good way.
