Love Poem for Yoshi


Yoshi_2017 Sep 25 (10)
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.
