My Sparky

My heart is broken, where did you go?
You were in my arms just one week ago
Then suddenly nothing but darkness and pain
I knew we’d come to the end of your days
How would I manage to let you go?
Cut the tie that bound you and release your soul?
I’d learn to live with just memories
Through pain so deep I cannot breathe
Soar to the Heavens my beautiful friend
I choose to believe I’ll see you again
I know people say you were “just a dog”
They’re too blind to see they were looking at God.

very nice poem, my BFF lost her beagle last year, we cried together for two weeks straight. She wrote a poem/song much like this one.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I too lost my 13 year old Black Lab, Jade in February of 2010. I had no idea that I would become so attached to a dog, and so devistated when I lost my Jade. I completely understand what your poem meant by "some people say your just a dog". Those that have never had the pleasure of having a dog, will truely never understand. Your poem was beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Judy St.Ores
