Sweet memories of you

Paw prints on my heart

A void so deep within

My world now torn apart


I look for you each day

As I open up the door

And think for just one second

I see you cross the floor


Tail straight up and pointed

I sign you’re glad I’m home

You circle all around me

So glad I’m not alone


But then one blink I realize

It was only just a flash

Of happier and brighter times

My tears fall hard and fast


I know that you are happy

And in a better place

But all that I am left with

Is the image of your face
