You took my heart with you, when you went to sleep. I almost cannot go on, I feel I cannot breathe.
My little white girl, ears spotted with brown.
I miss those loving glances, and in your kisses I used to drown.
The way you would run faster than the wind, and how you never left my side, you were always standing at my shin.
I miss the way your head would tilt just to howl a tune, and when I returned home - your doggy cries filled up my once empty room.
I was lucky to have known you, my angel way up there - but I can't help but miss you terribly, my clothes still hold your hair.
I know you see me, still carrying around your favorite toy. It makes me feel close to you because it brought you so much joy.
Sometimes late at night I hear you kick your water dish, then I see you are not there, to have you back with me is my one and only wish.
Until the day we meet again, and I hear those familiar cries,
Please know I will carry you in my heart forever, because there you never died.
