Cowboy by Anita Hancock / BrokenHeart left behind

I chased a shooting star,
as it blazed across the night sky.
For I knew it was my beloved friend,
running through the fields of Heaven.
As he vanished from my sight
tears filled my eyes.
Gone from my life,
my forever companion.
My heart and soul, my very world
the day my wonderful dog,
laid in my arms, to sleep
and wake never more.
Lost and lonely
in a cold empty world.
I traveled to the rainbow’s end.
Knowing I would find him there.
Together forever we will be,
two shooting stars
blazing across
the midnight sky.


Love you and miss you always and forever,
