 Elsie`s Poetry



The last year has gone so fast
Yet my pain has still not passed,
I miss Sweep just as much today
Missing him will not go away.

Kieran and Rebecca miss Sweep too
And Bradley who was only just two,
Bradley copies Sweep to this day
All his antics in every way.

They say `Wish he was still here`
And this makes me shed a tear,
I can hear the sadness in their voice
`That day` I wish I`d of had a choice.

I think of Sweep and I begin to smile
But it only lasts for a little while,
Sadness of missing him sets in again
It is just a never ending pain.

I walk now with no shadow by my side
I miss Sweep this fact I cannot hide,
When I cry a lot I call these `bad Sweep days`
But he`ll always be close for in my garden he lays.


Sweep…June 1995  ~  30th May 2009
