Tribute To A Best Friend 

Sunlight streams through window pane 
unto a spot on the floor.... 
then I remember, 
it's where you used to lie, 
but now you are no more. 
Our feet walk down a hall of carpet, 
and muted echoes sound.... 
then I remember, 
It's where your paws would joyously abound. 
A voice is heard along the road, 
and up beyond the hill, 
then I remember it can't be yours.... 
your golden voice is still. 
But I'll take that vacant spot of floor 
and empty muted hall 
and lay them with the absent voice 
and unused dish along the wall. 
I'll wrap these treasured memorials 
in a blanket of my love 
and keep them for my best friend 
until we meet above

My forever pet

There's something missing in my home, I feel it day and night, 
I know it will take time and strength before things feel quite right. 
But just for now, I need to mourn, My heart -- it needs to mend. 
Though some may say, "It's just a pet," I know I've lost a friend. 
You've brought such laughter to my home, and richness to my days. 
A constant friend through joy or loss with gentle, loving ways. 
Companion, friend, and confidante, A friend I won't forget. 
You'll live forever in my heart, My sweet, forever pet.
