                 To hold you once again... once again...
                 What will you do without me, little one? 
                 Will you feel alone? Will you miss my shoes?
                 Will you be scared of the thunder?  ...having it so close...

                 My evenings are lost in the maze of your memories
                 What have we not done together? What have we not shared? 
                 Lately, the strawberry ice cream melts dripping to the floor 
                 and waits there

                 To whom will you wake up with your warm and sticky tongue ?
                 Will there be sunrises there?
                 From whom will you hide the shoes?  
                 Will there be shoes there?

                 When we meet again... 
                 Will you be waiting for me?
                 Will you remember me?
                 ...or my voice? ...or my shoes?

    Ruben, you have expressed the same thoughts as I once did in a long ago poem for my dog Ollyver. He had not died. he had to be given up and it just killed me to do that to him. I always wondered if he loved his new master and what became of him. I am sure he died by now. Congrats on your well deserved win.

    Aww this sure is sad, and the way you had all these questions (& left unanswered) made it aall the more sad-- and what's this I read from below? Sticky is a hamster?? awwww, those are really cute, now i feel even sadder :( -- but then we have to be happy he's probably in hamster heaven now :) btw thanks so much for the fave :)-- how awesome of you to see the other meanings I was striving for that poem :) -- nikko :)

    Precious, Ruben. Surely she will not forget you, your voice or your love. Now, I might forget what someone was wearing on their feet, but I won't forget a poem like this one! Love, Carolyn

    Well, you had me fooled, but that is the skill of a writer and you sure do have that skill, and Ruben the death of two hamsters you love can be just as tramatic( I read Andreas comments ha ha)I cried when one of my gold fish died, I will never forget Tangle, got stuck in the treasure chest and drowned, poor Tangle, all gold and he sure loved the bubbles that is what killed him, chasing bubbles..

  1. Date: 10/27/2010 8:58:00 PM

    hahahaha, I shouldn't laugh, but wow, you had me fooled that you had owned this cute dog described here. Hmmm, I guess two hamsters can be traumatic as well. Had you had them a long time?

    SWEET SWEET SWEET, Rueben. Just four of us in this little contest and we all get certificates, isn't that nice? WAs this little dog named Sticky then?? I miss Ollyver sometimes. He was such a loving dog! andrea
