Love Poem for Yoshi

Briefly here,

my love, then gone,

I’m left with

hollow, aching heart;

eleven years

are not enough,

though every

second count;

but the bitter

wind is cruel

that grays us,

and preys

upon regrets;

so many miles

we walked together,

Yoshi, you and I,

I with my head

in the clouds

and you,

running ahead

then pausing

to look back

as if to say

“hurry, the end is almost here.”

  1. Sending love. I lost mine a couple months ago. Few things in life are harder than this. But few times are more beautiful than the ones we were so blessed to share with our beloved, furry family members. May you be reunited again. ❤

    1. I can’t imagine a home without pets, even if only as an example of what truly unconditional love is. Not only that, but the trust from a pet that knows it is loved is simply a miracle. Thank you for commenting ❤

    1. Thank you – I appreciate that 🙂 Yoshi was such a great companion. Our annual hiking and camping vacation in Maine, just Yoshi and me, won’t be the same without him. He loved and was loved so much in return ❤ ❤

      1. Will, you’re very welcome. I love dogs and I lost two of them so I know how you feel. I cried for three dogs when I lost the first one. It’s like losing a family member. Take care.
