I Never Went Away
(In Loving Memory – Pet Loss – Dog Poems)

I stood by your bed last night
I came to have a peep ..
I could see that you were crying
You found it hard to sleep.

I whined to you softly
as you brushed away a tear ..
“It’s me, I haven’t left you
I’m well, I’m fine, I’m here.”

I was close to you at breakfast
I watched you pour the tea ..
You were thinking of the many times
your hands reached down to me.

I was with you at the shops today
Your arms were getting sore ..
I longed to take your parcels
I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today
You tend it with such care ..
I want to re-assure you
that I’m not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house
as you fumbled for your key ..
I gently put my paw on you
I smiled and said ” it’s me.”

You looked so very tired
and sank into a chair ..
I tried so hard to let you know
that I was standing there.

It’s possible for me
to be so near you everyday ..
To say to you with certainty
“I never went away.”
