Your loving eyes no longer watch me from the window,
I won’t hear you wimper as if you were asking me not to go.
Your dirty paw prints no longer cover the floor.
You will not be there to greet me at the door.
You won’t be there for me to cuddle with when I’m sad,
You will no longer so innocently make me mad.
Oh but how I wish that you could,
Just like you always would.
The emptiness and silence are almost too much to bare.
I would give anything just to see you there,
Chewing everything that fits in your mouth,
Stealing our food and making me shout.
I miss you sweet boy,
I hope heaven greeted you with a brand new squeaky toy.
And I hope that all of your pain was no more,
As soon as you walked through heaven’s door.
I know it is so much fun and that you are running free,
But all I ask from you,
Is everyone once in a while, please check in on me.
You trusted me so willingly.
You trusted me more than I trusted me.
You took a piece of my heart with you when you left,
Keep it with you always,
And I will take care of the rest.
Fly high my loyal pup,
But please don’t ever forget us.
