Remnants of Roxanne

Remnants of you Roxanne
Drape over my memory like a warm blanket

I can still see you there just over my shoulder
Your smiling eyes and toothy grin beaming up at me

I still feel your warmth in the rays of the sun
And I still hear your voice in the winds that blow across this land
This land... your home
Will forever feel the presence of your shadow watching over...
Watching over us all

And though I am sad to be parted from you my friend
I am reassured to know...
That now there'll be someone to watch over me wherever I go

- for Roxie, my faithful wonderful friend

wow, Chris. I finally found one by going to your best poems list and seeing number 4, which I had not seen yet. This is fantastic. aRe you the Chris in the picture?? Have you heard of the new movie a Dog's Purpose? I think you will love it.

Glad you liked this Andrea...yes that is me in pix (20 yrs younger). My friend read the book A Dog's Purpose and told me what it was about...funny thing, I have the same thing going on in my life with a cat that I swear is the same spirit returning to me over and over again!

Thanks... she was the best little mix breed horse farm dog, and she really was one of those dogs who would part her lips and smile at you!
