Hello everyone! Have no fear, I don’t intend to use this space for myself beyond this one time. This is just something I wanted to share with you all. When it comes to poetry, I’m all thumbs. I love reading and listening to it, but I really suck at writing it. lol
About this Poem: For those that may not know, our dog died September 17- two days before the two year anniversary of my dad’s passing- so it was an emotional time. Both of them influenced my life in so many ways.
When growing up, my parents taught he to be be honest and treat everyone fairly, but my dad took it a step further by teaching me to be independent and think for myself.
Our dog, Sootie, was nothing but pure love. She woke us in the morning with kisses. When we came home she greeted us at the door with a toy in her mouth, squeaking it while playfully growling and wagging her tail. When one of the cats was sick (even the one that tormented her), Sootie was the first one there whimpering and wagging her tail trying to help.
Both of them are missed, but they’ll never be forgotten.
Thanks for sitting through my rambling. :) This poem is for anyone that’s lost a loved one. Hope you like it.
Missing You by CP Bialois
Every morning I wake,
I expect to find you sleeping.
Yet, when I look to give you a shake,
Memories of you leaving bring back my weeping.
Every night I remember you leaving,
And wish I could change history.
My heart breaks and my chest starts heaving,
Only to begin the cycle again, hoping for a different destiny.
