A Poem For My Dog Casper 1993-2002 - Poem by James Tipp

You have gone my little man, my companion
My friend through thick and thin
In rain and shine we explored the quarry
The country lane the hedgerows.
That handsome face and golden coat.
Wet nose dripping with expectation
The walk would bring in new smells.
The house this room, your chair lie empty
A stillness that cries lonely; and empty space
Where once my friend lie sleeping.
I mourn for you for you were family
Though you never spoke a word
Your love was real and freely given
I miss the nudge that said open the door.
The perfect timing of your clock for dinner.
The patient wait for your piece of toast at breakfast.
You enriched my life, farewell my most handsome friend.
