My Old Friend

Rating: 5.0

My Old Friend

Well old friend, it's come to this,
As I thought it might someday.
Life is short and often sad
When things turn out this way.

I used to dread this coming day
When I was just a boy.
And wished that it might never come,

The end of all my joy.

I was carried to the time when I was a child and when we lost a pet the whole family made a ceremony of it, sincere tears, the service in the garden; we learned early to value life and to treat life with respect, no matter whose it is and what form it takes. Beautifully written GW62.

This is one of the most touching poems I've ever read. It deals with emotions so personal that it is just not appropriate to analyze it. I only say this poem is wonderful.

Most of us have laid to rest a beloved furry friend. So difficult to do and you put it very well. I love your rhyming style. Best Wishes, Marilyn

What a moving poem. Sorry for the loss of your old friend. I know animals always have had a special place in my heart and I can see that your old friend had a special place in your heart, too. Beautiful. Sincerely, Connie Webb

Awhile back I inquired with several people if they remembered a great lament for man's best friend. I looked for some time and read some fair pieces but never the one I had originally read on the post pages. I am elated to have found this work of yours, again, and for good reason. Shortly after I read it for the first time, my own dog has passed on, and I have not been able to muster up a poem of my own to reflect my feelings over the loss. Yours is all that is needed. So thanks, GW! -Tailor
