Today 2 Spots n' a Dox posted this poem in response to Noah going to The Rainbow Bridge and I want to save it.
A poem by Genie Graveline)
I Miss My Dog.. ......
I miss my dear and faithful friend.
We traveled through the years together,
he and I, each watching the other grow older.
he was the keeper of my heart-
aware of my ups and downs,
responsive to my needs,
affectionate and true.
My life is different now without him.
It's strange to come home
and not hear his familiar bark,
or see that tail wagging furiously
back and forth--so happy just to see me.
I sit...expecting him to run over and nudge me,
or put his head in my lap,
but, he doesn't come.
he is not there.
This place is not the same without him.
Still, I know that I was lucky
to have him for so long.
I keep telling myself that.
But, whenever I feel like it,
I'm going to have myself a good cry,
and I won't be shamed by my tears.
It's the least I can do
to mourn such a loyal and devoted friend.
Mom thought this poem was very meaningful and touched her and we are going to save it. The parents that she meets on Dogster love their dogs so much and it we all feel their sadness and hurt when one crosses over to The Rainbow Bridge. We all feel the loss.
