Thanksgiving This Year

Thanksgiving this year

Full house brimming

With sounds of laughter;

Children running around

Platters high with food

Everyone together on

This very special day

Family spending time

When all come from all over.

Why Does Death Look Pale

Why does death look pale?
In cold trance of life gone by
Death takes them in hand
Leads them to where we don’t know
Their eyes close at last
Death leaves grieve in its wake
Our faces raw with tears
We remember our loved one now pass

Holidays Come Upon Me

Holidays come upon me
Turkey dinners which smell declious
Cheerful gathering of family
Only it’s the anniversary of my beloved pet’s death
Passed away across the rainbow bridge last year
My sorrow was great, my first holiday without her
This year my heart has slowly mended
A new dog enter my life
Has brought some joy back into the holidays
But this month I will always remember my loss
For she passed away just two days ago
My smiling shining star
Now up in sky watching down on me
As busy holidays come right around the corner

What Words Can I Say

What words can I say;
Which have been said already
In countless poems about you.

From your looks
Too your unique doggy habits
And your inspiration alone.

You will always be my first;
My furry child
Who just loved hanging out at home.

I still think of you
As it will be year since you pass
And crossed over the rainbow bridge.

I hope you are enjoying the outdoors
Drinking in fresh air
And maybe doing rocket dog
Zooming top speeds all around some place.

Your smile alone brightened my days
I can still see it
But it is now only memories
And not the real thing.

What can I say; except I love you
And that I miss you every day.
