'Waiting For Wilbur'

Wilbur waits for me

Wilbur waits for me


I just finished a poem to my dog Wilbur. I sent a copy to one of my friends and he said it would be a wonderful thing to share. So I thought I would. If you like it, you can use it on your poem page so others can use it.

Wilbur left us in March. When I start to feel lonely and want him by my side, I write a letter to him or write him a poem. I miss him so much.

This is my words to our fuzzy angel Wilbur. He found us September 1997 and left us in March 2010.

Waiting For Wilbur

You run green fields and chase the clouds.

No boundaries. No sorrow. No pain.

Although I want to be with you, it is here where I remain.

Our memories are comfort now.

So treasured. So welcomed. So strong.

Although you are in another place, it is here where I belong.

One day, I know, I’ll cross the bridge.

Over stars. Beyond clouds. By the sea.

But until I travel to rainbows end. By the shore, Wilbur waits for me.
