                 ~~ A LONELY SEVEN YEARS ~~              

I always thought seven was my lucky number
But not while you lie in eternal slumber,
For seven years I`ve lived with a heavy heart
It started the day that you did depart.

I hate Saturday`s for that is the day you died
I held you in my arms and oh how I cried,
Every moment of it is etched in my brain
And the memory of it just drives me insane.

With the pain I felt I thought I would die
It would have been easier I can`t deny,
Losing you was like losing life itself
Without my shadow I can`t be myself.

Missing you seems to grow more every day
I think of the times that you loved to play,
`Drop` or `leave` was not your favourite command
But when ready you`d push the toy in my hand.

I long for the days you`d take me for a walk
And all of the time to you I would talk,
We had different routes that we would take
If I walk those paths now my heart does ache.

There`s no getting over you I know this now
I loved you too much for my heart to allow,
I walk in the sun but my shadow isn`t there
For by my side is where you always were.

So for seven years I have walked alone
It has been so lonely with no chaperone,
You`re a constant ache within my heart
Because Sweep you were my counterpart.


Sweep June 1995 - 30th May 2009

An endless loss
