Just my thoughts on the world

Ode to a friend

tamWarning: Emo poetry below. Avert your eyes should you care.

Dear little one
With coat of brown
Like chocolate
(which you loved)

Dear friend of mine
Who once ran like the wind
And bounded deer-like
Through the long grass

Most cherished heart
Who would sit at the
Foot of the bed
Just to be near me

Little loved one
With amber eyes
That always understood
Full of love

Silken eared pet
Who listened for us
Always greeted us
Like prodigal sons

Wet brown nose
That always knew
When to sniff your hand
To warm the heart

Little Bambi
With manners fine
A coat of wool
And temperament sweet

Little canine sister
Who I loved dear
May your rest be sweet
And there be no more pain
May you have known
How loved you were
And that we will never
Let your memory fade

I hope one day
We meet once more
And I can hold you
With love again

Rest in peace Bambi darling, 20/6/2009, 15 years of age (105 dog years).

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey, you’ll never now dear, how much I loved you, please don’t take my sunshine away.
