my constant companion

by Nil   Apr 16, 2023

I miss the comfort that your presence brings
When nothing else would, and everything else
Was so overwhelming

You were a piece of me, I knew someday
Would have to leave
But I was never ready

However I had to be
I had to be strong for you
Until the very end

You are and always will be--
My constant companion

~~~I miss you Gunnison.
My Gunnison.~~

My dog of almost 15 years crossed the rainbow bridge on 12/15/2022
I had him since he was 1.

    I want to say something, but the sadness is getting in my way.

    It is so hard I know. I relate. I lost my dogs too. I do not know what love is suppose to bring us, but I don't think the grief should be the only outcome.

      I wish it wasn't the only outcome, however I know my sweet old boy had a wonderful life and I know he will be waiting for me in the afterlife.
