Rowdy Elizabeth

I’ll never forget
that day at the vet
When they handed me
your leash my beloved pet.

The Cushing’s Disease ran
through your liver and brain
Although you didn’t show it
you were in pain.

Twelve years of having you
by my side
Now nothing but emotions
that I can not hide.

It’s been nine months now
since you’ve been gone
Sometimes I wonder how I go on.

Soon the emotions will fade away
but your memories will be with me
Until my dying day.

Someday we’ll be together again
to fly with the angels
your paw in my hand.
