To love through loss

Teary eyed she stands in the rain

Asks “Daddy why did she die”

He father holds her hand and says

“sometime we don’t know why.”


Dear love, best friend so loyal and true

She remembers, heart forlorn

The moments shared, the life the love

So cruelly from life torn


“It seems so sad, she was so young”

As tears mix with the rain

“do doggies go to heaven dad?

Will I see her again?”
