A Dog's Passing

At times I feel so confused and wonder what to do. Standing at the door, in or out, out or in, is the sky so blue?
I walk the same old path, it was the highlight of my day but I didn’t make it, he had to carry me half the way. 
I woke up this morning feeling just so wrong but she made me feel better, her voice is like a song.   
Feeling all so tired but excited anyway when I heard him step thought the door, on this very day.
I noticed a tear in his eye and stood up just say” I love you so much, I wish we could go out and play”  
He helped me to lay back down and said it would be o.k.  
They both stay there, stroking my golden hair 
Even once or twice, said a little prayer.
As I close my eyes, I know I will be missed. 
Wishing I could give them both, one more little kiss.
