Shadow: My reason for life
This dog I held in my arms at night.
This dog I loved more than life.
When she left me I couldn’t figure out why.
Is there something I did? Why did she die?
I held her so tight, never letting go.
I cried and screamed and tried to not letting her know.
She began to sigh in pain, wanting god to take her away.
I fought with god, telling him no, you can’t take her this way.
She breathed so heavy, and wined in pain.
I held her tight, stroking her in vain.
Her eyes began to shut so tight; her heart began to slow.
But still I would not let her go.
Without my permission god took her away
Leaving me all alone to mend this pain.
