 Elsie`s Poetry




Twelve years or a decade and 2 years
Whichever way it`s said I still shed tears
For my heart has never truly healed
The hole you left will never be sealed.

The pain of losing you is never ending
Just like the pain my tears are unending
Missing you is so very hard to bear
And by my side is where I wish you were.


By my side like a shadow you were always there
You weren`t the best behaved dog I do declare,
Maybe a little mischievous I should say
But I wouldn`t have had you any other way.

It was all those little traits that made you, you
And now that you`re gone I feel sad and blue
The loss is so great and it just hurts so bad
That there are some days when I feel so sad.

I still talk to you in the garden where you lay
My mind takes me back to that dreadful day
The day you left me for you could not stay
It`s like an open wound even to this very day.

I will cry for you forever more my lovely Sweep
I`m not ashamed to admit that for you I weep
When you died the pain I felt was so intense
I was lost and nothing seemed to make sense.

Another poem added as the years roll on
I still look for you even though you are gone
I look down by my side where you once stood
My faithful shadow you`d be there if you could.

~~ Sweep June 1995 - 30th May 2009 ~~

~~~~I will always carry you in my heart ~~~
