I Still Feel Her Weight On My Lap

I still feel her weight on my lap
Black as lace, warm as a blanket on a winter day
Cuddling up next to each other
as our fears of thunderstorms pass by
Her greetings at the door, and a bark of happiness, as I come home from school
It’s as if she was saying, “I missed you”
I still feel her weight on my lap
My best friend Lacey who I miss dearly
Now is waiting by the gates of Heaven
Waiting to say, “I missed you”

I love this poem.  My favorite line is the part about waiting out the thunderstorms together.  So proud to see it here on the Teen Ink site.  :)
