FIVE LONG AND LONELY YEARS






 FIVE LONG AND LONELY YEARS





I miss the patter of your feet on the wooden floor
And your bark when there was a knock at the door,
I miss the fuss you made when I came from work
You were so happy to see me you went berserk.
    

I`d clip you on your lead and we`d go for a walk
Down to the woods and back to you I would talk,
Your tail would wag and you would glance back
Your way of saying `I`m giving you feedback`.



When we got in you`d sit and give me your paw
You wanted your treat so you knew the score,
Sometimes I would put choc drops over the floor
You`d watch me intently this game you did adore.
                       

Then when I went moving from room to room
Your usual position as my shadow you`d resume,
You were always there wherever I would turn
How I wish that those days could return.



But now I walk alone around the house
Everywhere is as quiet as a mouse,
You are not there to go with me to and fro
So I am alone now and I have no shadow.
                                       

Missing you is endless I know this for sure
You can never come back to me so there`s no cure,
My eyes are still not dry from crying for you
I`ll continue to miss you `til my life is through.



Sweep my beautiful dog my heart aches to hold you
To stroke you and fuss you and play with you,
I am so miserable without you
I know I will never get over you.
                                              

Five years of misery and heartache I`ve endured
Time and again `It`ll get better` I`ve been assured,
But they are so wrong as the pain does not ease
That empty space you left - time cannot appease.





 Sweep June 1995 - 30th May 2009  
~~

Forever missing you.
