Back to Poems
You're still here, it's like you never left at all
I can hear each thunderous footstep fall
Ducking into shadows when I think to look
Padding up behind me when I'm lost inside a book
I almost feel your pressure on the floor
Filling up the room just like before.
I feel you here, it's like you never left at all
Walking beside me down the hall
I smell you everywhere, especially in my mind
A thousand memories cannot be left behind
You watched my children grow, you watched them change
For seven years, you were our furry angel.
You weren't a dog, you were my closest friend
It is so hard to let you go
But the age and pain in your eyes echoed my concern
And I couldn't hold you back
My angel was called elsewhere.
So good morning, little moonlight, it's the day you have to die
Good morning, little moonlight, and goodbye.
