I cannot bear to lose you,
Though I know you must one day go.
All the miles you have walked by my side,
are but a fraction of that long walk home.
A bright, jingling empty collar,
and a heart as heavy as a stone.
No one can prepare me for that awful long walk home.
Every creature has its time,
and though I will not let you go.
You will go where I cannot follow,
and leave me with the long walk home.
I wrote this poem while waiting to hear if my pet was coming home from an emergency vet visit. Below is a spoken performance of that poem.
