Dutches by Tara

Your Favorite cage is vacant now
no jumping on the
side to greet me.

No softly padded paws
to run ecstatically beneath me.
No chewing on your wheel and
no banging your water
will say its time for playing

I put away your bowl and
all the things
you won’t be needing.

Though I will miss
you little friend
for I could never measure.
The happiness you brought to me
the comfort and the pleasure.

All of us down here are
full of tears and sorry
but I know there is a place
for you in heavens
bright tommorow.

I miss you Dutches.
You were my pride and joy…..
