Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.
We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious.....And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
-Walt Disney


A final breath, she lightened in my arms
I felt her soul a-leaving me alone
I knew where she would go, her loving charm
Heaven sent, angel upon a gravestone

Too easily, she had broken my heart
I would break it again without a thought
Love, it had a sting like a sour tart
Beautiful, yet it ties my soul to knots

My heart shattered, I grieved and had a cry
I replayed the moment, my breath gasping
When she gave up the fight, choosing to die
Leaving, her voice fading to ill rasping

Not for faint of heart, that harsh blow of love
Though still my heart flutters, wings of a dove


The author's comments:
This is yet another poem about my dog (honestly, I could fill a whole archive with these!)... Writing all these poems about her hurts a bunch, but afterwords, I can actually live again. Sure, my friends worry about the fact that most of my poems are depressing, but that keeps me from being all emo and gloomy other times. So here's to you Teddy!
