Trails of green

A Poem by Centipedle
"

A memorial poem

"
As the sun has set on this brand new horizon
I lay your body into the ground
Under that brand new tree in the backyard
It's windy today you know
In your final resting place
In this old desert
I'll always remember you
Man's best friend
A part of my family
Goodbye.

My dog passed away last night, and we buried him this morning. He was about thirteen to fourteen years old. My best friend and my very first dog. It had indeed been a sad day.

Followed friends here and glad I did.
Not to feel a shiny nose surpise your hand
Not to feel a paw suddenly appear where it shouldn't
Not to see those eyes that say that had been left alone long enough so it is obviously mine and I decided to tear it to small pieces.
All these I appreciate and you have my thoughts.
Sometimes in work like this it is easy to miss the quality of the write. Not so here.

Short & simple & honest & heartfelt! I'm sorry for your loss . . . I'm so attached to all my pets, I still remember the feeling of losing each one, over the years. I like that you describe the soothing ritual of burial, which can be sad & comforting at the same time. Love the everyday observations, like the world goes on, despite this tragedy in your life (((HUGS)))

This is so sad. Hugs to you during this difficult time. A beautiful tribute to a best friend lost. I understand this feeling all too well. It's a hard thing to bare. Well written. Sending prayers.

Such a hard time to bear when one of our family passes away.Animals are such creatures of love.Hard when one loses a friend. Nicely expressed;-]

So sad, I am sorry to hear about your dog... I too had a dog pass away a bit ago. Love the poem, its a fitting tribute to your furry friend.

And, now I am crying. Where was the "Grab your Kleenex box" disclaimer!!!! I am so sorry for your loss. Your friend now walks beside your spirit to guard you in the beyond and unknown.
