Hi all I've just recently lost my beautiful dog of 14 years. Here's a poem I wrote a short time after. It seemed to help me. I've never written any thing before, so really surprised myself I was sitting down writing a poem.


Nose PrintsOn The Window


Nose prints on the window,
Paw prints on the floor,
A water dish lies empty,
A leash that walks no more,
Imprints upon a cushion,
Claw marks on the door,
Hairs upon the living room mat,
From where you lay before.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In life you brought great joy to me,
I was there when you were born,
I seen you take your first breath,
On that cold spring morn,
I thought you well, I watched you grow,
From a pup into a dog,
For long walks we would go through rain, snow and fog,
A friend to me you became, so faithful and so true,
I was always happiest when I was close to you,
Inseparable we became,
I loved you every day,
Fond memories of summers past,
When you ran amongst the hay.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
14 years they pass so quick,
Your life it slips away,
Your eyes grew dim, your body weak,
On that final day,
I lay with you upon that mat,
On the livingroom floor,
Rubbed your belly stroked your head,
Dropped tears upon your nose,
You try to hide your pain from me,
I see it in your eyes,
I dread to think what life will be,
Without you by my side.
For on this day I must be strong,
A choice I make for you,
Through tear filled eyes and breaking heart,
I know what I must do.


At the final moment,
I hugged you oh so tight,
I told you how much I loved you,
Just like that long last night,
And as you slipped away from me,
I held you by your chin,
I rubbed your ears and kissed your nose,
And said well meet again,
Your body now is lifeless, your pain its gone away,
My life it felt so empty, when I lost you on that day.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shadows in the corner
A Welcome home no more,
Silence in the kitchen,
No tapping on the door,
This house it seems so empty,
From the life it had before,
Nose prints on the window,
Paw prints on the floor.
