Your Pet Loss Poems

'Ginger's Poem'

by Glenn Smith
(Peoria AZ USA)

I miss you my beloved dog, it’s only been awhile
I am trying to do my best to think of you and smile

The guilt I feel today is oh so very strong
Thinking back over the last month or so, and I know now it was wrong

I should have noticed more that you were starting to fail
And that your life here on earth was finally getting ready to sail

When you needed me the most I pushed you away
Oh what wouldn’t I give to have you back with me today

Now my heart and I feel so very much alone
Oh if I could just have you back in my now empty home

At least I was with you on that sad and final day
The Vet had told me everything would be OK

They say that your sleep was a gift I gave to you
But I know in my heart that it wasn’t really true

My selfishness was greater than my thoughts for you my love
And now I can only pray to my Father God above

That when my empty life is finally at an end
That our Father in Heaven will put us back together again
