With Moonshine and Ember

With Moonshine and Ember

A Poem by butterfly

For my dog nephew Percy RIParadise

His kisses were delicious
I savor his hazelnut coffee coat
I can still feel his furriness
Out of all the Percy's I have known I miss him the most
Why do we lose power in our bones?
Where is the mercy from our faith and the unknown?
All these questions  and All these answers
Become the midnight dancers
We still end up without clues
I remember you
forever and ever
the memories stay alight with moonshine and ember
My darling nephew
I wonder if you knew
Your last hour would come at 2?
What can we do?
I would give up forever for only 10 years to know you
We didnt get a choice
God calls you home with HIS voice
In my heart I also rejoice
But knowing we will part I also feel annoyed
what are the lessons we must learn
the light and life have gone never to return
the pain burned away
God took it and you with His grace
To the better place
How I still long to see your face
I cant believe our last time was yesterday
All i can say is his kisses are delicious
I savor your hazelnut and coffee colored coat
Love is eternal within the furriness
Out of all the Percy's I miss you the most
I know its time for you to go
To stay would only be living without hope
Returning to angel wings
The guardian of childish things
a love stronger than a thousand hot flings
Crying every night at this now diminished quality of life
what is right?
Watching one suffer from pain inside
Or feeling comfort in the arms of my sister and the kids that held you tight
the season of youth has reached the end of time
Oh dear dog nephew
I remember you
forever and ever
for the memories stay a light with moonshine and ember
