 Elsie`s Poetry



I live in constant pain each and every day
This is how it has to be there is no other way,
You see Sweep I just couldn`t keep you any more
I did my best for you but there was just no cure.

The decision I had to make that fateful day
Heavy on my heart forever it will lay,
What the vet told me I didn`t want to hear
My heart seemed to stop it froze in fear.

Selfishly I could have kept you with me
But your pain and suffering I would see,
I loved you so much I couldn`t do it to you
I hope you understood I like to think you knew.

I hope you could hear me as you drifted off to sleep
As I told you of all the memories you gave me to keep,
It was far from easy letting you slip away
You took a part of me on that dark day.

As your eyes dimmed and you breathed no more
My heart so heavy went crashing to the floor,
My pain is endless it runs so deep
`I`m Sorry` I couldn`t save you my precious Sweep.
