Brooke - Poem by Emily Casbourn

Not just a pet
A best friend
Someone I can trust
No longer able to hear
Not able to see to well

A spark of independence
A dawn of intelligence
Afriend and a life long companion

You weren't doing well
I heard that you fell
You crashed to the floor
You couldn't get up anymore

They took you to the vet
It was rainy and wet
Ithought that was the end
I thought my heart was going to run

You have been by my side
14 long years of my life
Something inside felt wrong
You needed love to be strong

They brought you home
Disoriented and not very strong
You have brain damage
You didn't recognize me at all

I wanted to cry
I wanted to scream
Brooke you know I love you
My baby
My heart

She started to walk
She got better with time
She was healthy and somewhat stable

Lying infront of me now
I am so proud
You were strong throughout everything

A dog is a persons best friend
Loyal to the end

Brooke I love you
Thank you for being my friend
Thank you for loving me

She is on the mend
Vet said she may have another one
I have faith in my dog
I hope it doesn't
I don't want to play god.
