We’ve shared our lives these many years.
You’ve held my hand; you’ve held my heart.
So many blessings, so few tears
Yet for a moment, we must part.
The memories you’ve given me
Are times I’ve shared with my best friend
I’ll hold them, love. right here they’ll be
Until we share our lives again.
Sunlight streams through window pane
onto a spot on the floor…
then I remember,it’s where you used to lie,
but now you are no more.
Our feet walk down a hall of carpet
and muted echoes sound….
then I remember,
It’s where your paws would joyously abound
A voice is heard along the road,
and up beyond the hill
then I remember it can’t be yours….
your golden voice is still.
But I’ll take that vacant spot of floor
and empty muted hall
and lay them with the absent voice
and unused dish along the wall
I’ll wrap these treasured memorials
in a blanket of my love
and keep them for my best friend
until we meet above.
