Poetry By: patspoems

My beloeved dog Holly died three weeks ago. She always barked sometime in the night to go to the bathroom - I always grumbled but she didn't mind. I have awoken to her bark twice since she has gone and I know it's just me and having her on my mind, but I am hoping I am wrong.

I heard you calling me

Like you always did - in the night

I'd grumble to myself

But you needed to go out

Sleepily I'd come to you

You, my gorgeous girl were

Always pleased to greet me

Always there

But now it's just a dream

You have gone

My heart breaks

Your bark is just a dream

I awake to the emptiness

You have left

I'm sure I heard that bark

I'm sure I did

I like to think

That in the darkness of the night

You are still guarding me

And that bark wasn't just a dream
