A golden heart (and fur to match)

by Nil   Jul 3, 2010


Sometimes there just aren't words to express
The deep down emptiness
When you lose someone so very dear
To wake up and realize they aren't here-
To comfort you when you're in need,
Even in the silence
They help you find peace

They've been a shoulder to cry on
And a warm welcome sight
Someone always happy to see you
Whether it's day or night,
And when you sleep
They are there watching you dream,
Content just laying by your side it seems~

They enjoy the little things
Like a treat here and there,
A walk around the block,
Being praised for coming when called,
And all the love and affection that follows~

Six years ago a friend of all friends was born
And yesterday that friend was called home,
I was blessed to have a friend so true
Regardless of breed-
I'll miss my wonderful goob,
His heart of gold
And his matching fur

Rest in peace Davey~
you deserve an eternity of happiness

    Even though I've never had a dog, I've always wanted one and I feel your pain. A dog is like having a best friend no matter what u say, how you look, or how you feel that day. A dog will always love it's owner no matter what and that is extremely precious. My deepest sympathies to you.

    Nitpicks: None. Maybe I'll look at recent poems instead of going to the r/v/c forum more often; this is the second one in a row I haven't had to pick apart for grammar, spelling, and usage. :P

    It's funny that I didn't really think about the title until I read this stanza:

    They enjoy the little things
    Like a treat here and there,
    A walk around the block,
    Being praised for coming when called,
    And all the love and affection that follows

    I read the line "Being praised..." and thought, hmmm... that's a little odd, and then I realized it was talking about your dog. Being a huge dog lover myself (we have 7 in our backyard right now, 4 of them puppies that should have been gone 2 months ago according to the local laws) I think I can say I totally understand every part of this poem, including the deep feeling after the loss, which non-pet-lovers might question. Anyway, the poem was great (especially the last few lines before the memorial) and let's hope together that all dogs really do go to heaven!
