 Elsie`s Poetry



He says `Nothing will ever be the same again
As I feel so bereft and my heart is full of pain,
I had to say goodbye to my four legged friend
I couldn`t believe that for us this was the end`.

This is the path he and his dog took each day
Now he trudges along still going the same way,
His dog crossed Rainbow Bridge not so long ago
He lost his true companion and it was such a blow.

The dog had been by his side for many a long year
Now he is all alone and cries many a tear,
With a heavy heart he carries on his daily routine
But there are things afoot that cannot be seen.

He stops for a rest and sits on the wall like always
He thinks to himself `we did this in the happy days`
The dog would stand by his side and listen to him chat
Always pausing to give the dog a treat and a pat.

Thinking of his beloved dog a tear slips from his eye
Looking up he cries `Why Oh why did you have to die?`
`Nothing is the same now since you left me all alone
Without you I have nothing and no one I am on my own`.

But his little friend is with him albeit to him unbeknown
He walks by his side he wouldn`t leave him all alone,
If only he could see that they will never be apart
For his love for his dog he`ll always carry in his heart.

Each and every day he will walk the same way
And in his head the time with his dog he`ll replay,
Feeling lost and all alone he makes his way home
But if only he could see that he is never alone.
