Silver Eyes

Silver Eyes

A Poem by RileyD

Just something I casually wrote when I was bored.


Into the summer's night,

I howl grievingly.

You're losing your last fight, 

Darkness absorbing you thievingly.



I remember when we danced together, 

Beneath the autumn moon.

I remember when we sung together,

Beautifully as a loon.



I can't forget the hunger,

Starving near to death,

Or silently, solemnly grieving

Our pup's final breath.



The memories are fading

As you're breathing grows ever faint. 

Your lovely eyes are dimming,

I know it is too late. 



The precious, sacred liquid

Is seeping no longer.

The redness has stained the grass,

Along with your silky fur.



I know the time is here

When I must bid you farewell,

I let your struggles cease

Before my tears should swell.



I hope that, wherever you are, 

You are safe and warm and alive.

I will never forget our time together,

My beautiful silver eyes...
