Ghost Shadow

My boy Pup, at the river

You pad
soft and silent
through my dreams.
Your spirit comes
to me,
some mornings,
and you
rest your nose
on the side
of my bed,
and whuff,
as you used to do,
to wake me,
all the mornings
of your life.
Your absence
is a Presence
in my every
waking hour.
Your footsteps
will walk
forever
in my heart.

  4. I feel your loss and this tribute to him is wonderful. I miss my cat Oliver all the time and can remember him and his chatty ways, always talking to me as though he could never say enough. Nicely done.

  7. Oh Sherry!
    I lost one of my pups yesterday ~ 8 year old Bella. Rattlesnake bite. Gone in less than 3 hours. Heart-breaking. You know.

  8. I feel your loss. My rottie was my best friend. "Sometimes there is music
    only grieving ears can hear". Take care Sherry. LOVE YOUR BLOG!
