He Is Not There

My dog, Snowball, passed away Sunday, August 4th, 2019. I’m dedicating this poem to his memory. I’ll always love you bud!

I wake up every day
Expecting to see my
Furry friend, next to me
But he is not there

Through the morning routine
I reach for his bowl, and
Suddenly remember
That he is not there

Each day, I return home
In anticipation
Of his loving kisses
Yet he is not there

The home is so quiet
Without your joyfulness
Your steadfast devotion
The silly games we played

Yes, it’s true you’re not here
Your time on Earth is up
But you’ll be remembered
And as I look skyward

I’ll simply say, “he’s there!”

    1. Sorry it has taken this long to respond. Thank you for your kind words, Kenia. I’ve always known that my puppy and I would reunite after I cross over. That’s faith 🙂
