 Elsie`s Poetry



I drive past the vets again and again
And seeing this place just causes me pain,
I can`t change my route I`m mileage bound
So I guess I`m destined to do this round.

I see this place and I relive that day
I know the memory won`t go away,
It plays over and over in my head
How Sweep went in alive and came out dead.

I feel so guilty at letting him go
Yet it was the right thing to do I know,
Still I question myself time and again
It`s silly as there is nothing to gain.

No `ifs` or `buts` will ever bring him back
He`s left a big hole the colour of black,
My friend and companion I`ve lost in one
Now and forever from me he is gone.

Driving past the vets I`ll avert my eyes
Although inside my heart silently cries,
I miss him so much the pain won`t subside
I just wish once more he could be by my side.
