Was it worth it?

It's hard to breath
Without him here
It's even harder to breath
Knowing he's gone forever

Everywhere I seem to go
It's memories of him I see
They used to make me feel blessed
Now they attack every part of me

The question I ask
Is the pain worth this fall?
Is it better to have loved and lost
Or to have never loved at all?

I'm happy that I met him
I gave him the best life he could have had
I know memories are worth the pain
Yet I still feel so sad.

I want to see him happy
I want to get lost in his fur
I want him to feel love again
But I know he's gone forever

I held him his first minute
And I held him his last
His life was still worth it
Even though it happened so fast

This is really nice. I loved it, it reminded me of a dog i used to have. I had him for four years and just like that he was gone, but i never even got to say goodbye.

This peom is amazing! I'm so sorry for your pet goat, but what I really like about this poem is that you can relate this to any kind of relationship. This is definitely a 5 out of 5! If you would like, please come by and check out some of my work and give me some feedback. I would highly appreciate it! Thanks and thanks again for this poem! Keep it up!

I couldn't help but think of my pet doggy I used to have when I was a kid.

This is so touching! I love the rhyme scheme, and you completely captured my heart! I'm so sorry about your loss, that is always hard :( But if goats could read, he would love this piece, and I do too! :)
