"How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard." - Winnie the Pooh

That little black nose.
Those dark brown eyes.
They captivated me,
And it was no surprise.

But why was I so truly obsessed?
So in love with her soul,
So in love with the way she loved me.
It was out of my control.

Why? Why did I love her?
What drove me insane,
When she died?
I'm racking my brain.

Was it her spirit?
The way she ran when I came,
Almost as if I was her entire world.
Whose world am I now? For nothing remains.

She fills every,
Empty space in my heart,
Her teeth, her eyes, her ears,
Her brain, she was very smart.

This is why I love her,
Why I always did and always will,
I didn't want to lose her,
And now I live with the guilt.

This poem describes my love for my dog, who had to be put down in June of 2013. It broke my heart when she died and it was incredibly difficult to write this poem.
