I Have Three Favorite Pets- PET
and post notes and photos about your poem like Lu Loo.
Everynight in our house. This was in 2015. They would just lounge and then when Bo would walk Lucky would flip around on his tail. My family always called me Laura Loo. My aunt would say, "Laura Loo, I love you!" So I called him "Lucky Loo". :)
My three sweet boys passed within one year,
a Golden Retriever, white fluffy bunny and a Pug.
When I think of each memory I still wipe a tear,
and my delicate heart strings rip apart and are tug.
That Mugsy was so lazy with a stubby curly tail,
Bo was gentle, but arthritis made him slow as a snail.
Lucky my bunny always ate apples and kale.
But really all in one year? How could God let this be?
At times I feel I did something wrong to deserve the pain.
But it wasn't until my eyes opened recently with clarity
I saw I must allow all the happy moments to remain.
Mugsy with his yellow ducky that on purpose he'd drop,
and when I caressed Bo I wished to never stop.
Oh, just watching my bunny Lucky hop, hop, hop!
I watched them all take their last and final breath,
picturing them running across the bridge with glee.
For even though I feel the sorrow from their death,
I know they are in heaven with loved ones in harmony.
They each were so special to my family and I,
and yes when I see thier scrapbooks I still do cry.
I have been really trying hard lately not to ask why.
To Mugsy, Bo and Lucky I dedicate this poem to you,
may you finally be in peace and free from disease.
I shall live the rest of my life and when it is through
I know the pain of losing you three will cease.
I pray you haven't forgotten your mumma on earth,
and are barking and hopping full of gaiety and mirth.
Don't ever forget, to me, you were much worth.
No, I cannot pick just one pet-
for I have three I shan't forget!
