Dedicated to Chloe….the most beautiful dog we could have
Even as the great spark of life
dwindles to just an ember…
and all that is left is the twinkle
within your soft brown eyes…
Even as your body has failed…
and your spirit has flown elsewhere….
Bringing with it the true heart
of our little family….
But, out of the death…
will come new life….
And your body shall feed the sour fruits
with the sugar of your noble soul…
And we shall recover
to feast upon your kindness
To remember your nobility….
And smile at the sun…
as it reminds
