A Sad Day at the Veterinary Clinic

(To my Best Friend)

For you I dream of hope
always for tomorrow,
yet this day one hope’s never to end
although this life without a dream
a reality to pretend,
alas without a lifetime friend.

It’s almost tomorrow
a life sadly coming to an end,
something inside of me tells one
I’d been so wrong
when dreaming of our lives
in streams of tomorrow.

It’s almost tomorrow
this day one hope’s never to end,
tomorrow I know you’ll cease
to be my only friend
this life you live
to come to an end.

Goodbye! Oh no it’s almost tomorrow
this day which will wrench us apart,
“Please oh please
take the good out of goodbye,
there is nothing good,
about a final farewell”

    Harry, I can really relate to this one. We had to set a day to have our dearest cat put to sleep several years ago. The two new cats simply cannot replace her. they don't even come close! (about my avatar. I don't understand how to do it.I just happened to get that picture in sunglasses easily. I tried to change it for ya to see my eyes,but it didn't work out. The one I tried was too blurry, and I ended up with another sunglasses picture. haha)

    This reminds me of that old country-western song of yesteryear titled "Old Shep". Very descriptive as it aroused my emotions while reading.

    beautifully penned
