Patches by Pauline

What can I say? How much I miss you? The way you entered my heart? The emptiness you left there?

You were life & youth & discovery you brought joy & sweetness & contentment. You filled my life & gave meaning to my days. And the pain and the torment when you died.

Patches-I’ve never loved like I loved you. For your love was unconditional without vanity or jealousy or conceit.

You loved me for me – without self need. And I loved you because you loved me with your eyes your sighs and my moods means nothing to you. I have never loved a dog the way I loved you. And I’ll miss you forever.

If there’s a Heaven – You will be there – and we’ll love together. Forever as one.
