My Iguana Boy I Bid The Farewell - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

Demon, yesterday you left me to join your sister, Shreadder, in the beyond.
I cry inside for you, oh how I shall miss you my precious iguana boy.
Mommy loved you, and will forever love you.
You were a part of my heart which is now broken.
Tears stain my cheeks from the sorrow. I can not sleep without you at the foot of my bed.
I will no longer be able to hold you in my arms,
see you try to out smart me, and try to climb the nearest tree.
There will be no more swimming with you by my side as you enjoy the warm water.
What meaning has life, but that of a world without my little Demon.
