Brought you home with him
under his arms.
Your tongue lolling out,
and your eyes wide open
discovering a new place.
When he let you out of his arms,
you came to me,
as if you had known me for years.
We grew up,
paw in hand.
When even my shadow left me,
when my soul poisoned my thoughts,
when I held a grudge against smiling,
when happiness was just a word for me;
then you gently
placed your furry paw on my hand,
and sighed sadly
as if you felt that pain.
Now that you’ve left me, alone:
I feel lonely in this cruel world
And this sphere of greedy people.
My room and my thoughts
redolent with your
I wish you could come back, so that
I had someone to share all my secrets with
Without the fear of being judged;
So that, I had someone who would
always be there for me.
I miss tottering with you,
Tumbling with you
and doing the fox poo.
I miss gripping you,
cuddling with you.
Now that I wouldn’t have
to coax me,
I will relentlessly miss
