and post notes and photos about your poem like Emile Pinet.
Today I feel the weight of my loss,
you were my companion and best friend.
Our back yard was a gathering place,
where we'd roughhouse and play without end.
We shared many happy memories,
like walking you in the park each night.
And it's with a very heavy heart,
that I say farewell, life lost this fight.
I will miss the camaraderie
that allowed our hearts free range to roam.
And the secret smile that crossed my lips,
knowing you finally found a home.
I've been preoccupied with life's woes,
leaving little time to pat your head.
And you got less love than you deserved,
sleeping curled at the foot of my bed.
The time has come to say my goodbyes,
but I hope we'll meet again someday.
For now, Willy, I'll bid you adieu,
come see me in my dreams, and we'll play.
