No more seeing you pout when I walk through the door
to find trash strewn across the kitchen floor.
No more picking old diapers from the lawn
I never knew why you were drawn.
No more kisses from your wide wet tongue
the first of many I got when you were so young.
No more lying against your back
your warmth and love I will lack.
Forever more sweet thoughts of you
jumping in my lap when you were two.
Forever more you’re in my heart
it was so hard to have to part.
Forever more you will be missed
during lonely nights you were my bliss.
Forever more than my pet
you are family and one of the greatest friends I have met.
