To Zoe

I never told you How I would honor your memory, Finding another like you So I would not miss your kisses so much. I never told you How special you were, and How it was not my fault That you had to leave. I am sure you already know How it was all her doing. She had to try and replace you, Not caring how we felt. If it were up to me You would still be in my arms, Curled with me by the fireplace Or getting buried by the falling snow. You will never know How much I cried At all the notions Of never seeing you again. You will never know How I long to see your face, Stealing my food Or staring in my eyes. I always told you How to be a good girl And avoid trouble by Not jumping the fence. I always told you How I loved you And that I promised To take care of you always. I hope you will remember How we were like sisters, Different mothers, different breeds, But always as one heart.

what a lovely tribute - reminds me of the song the living years by Mike and the mechanics - a lesson to us all in telling people how much we care for one day it will be too late :-( hugs jan xx 7
