I wish my faithful friend was alive
I have seen many dogs in my life. I try to feed as many dogs and animals that I can. I had witnessed the death of my pet dog, Hope and I felt very helpless. I have penned down my emotions here, I hope I feel lighter.
Your barks have made me mad and your licks have irritated me,
Yet as you lay quietly on the floor, I want you to move
I want to see the twinkle in your eye
I want to witness my shoes been been torn by you
I will not shout at you in words you scarcely understand
I want to go to the beach with you
See you running with other dogs
but I can't see you here laying helpless
I do not want to wait for the moment your body stops breathing
I don't want to see your eyes shut forever
I will not share any more tearful secrets with you
But I don't want to lose you, Hope.
