Claude - Poem by Kristina Louisa Carr

I have lost you to death my faithful friend
You took my love with you and life is a bend
During your last hour you came back alive
But they said it was only because I arrived

I knew I did the only thing that I could do
But letting you go seems unreal and untrue
You have stayed by my side for over 12 years
What I have left now is your ashes and tears

In 12 years we have only been apart twice
For 2 nights the loss of sleep was the price
I remember your wounds from a raccoon
And your howling at night with a full moon

You never liked anyone that was close to me
For most it was only the pitbull in you they see
To me you were my beautiful friend and my child
No matter what you did it was me you beguiled

I forgave you for biting my friends and my shoes
The coffee table you destroyed without excuse
Because of your aggression you had to stay inside
But we went for walks and the beaches alongside

I loved your big head and your crooked ears
The scars you carried on your body from the years
At the city pound is where I fell in love with you
Right there at 8 weeks old you made your first debut

Every day I came home you greeted me with a smile
And every second we had together was worth while
I want to say good bye to you but only now and today
Because I will see you again my Claude and we will play
