'Pathway' - Poem by Whitney Albright

Yesterday I missed you so bad
That I found myself in your back yard alone
I became so terribly sad
Because I looked for you and forgot you were gone
My eyes looked down to that old familiar pathway
Where you would walk to the old dog pin
I just remembered those old days
How I'd never see you walk that path again
My memory seemed to be so clear
I walked with you down it so many times before
But this time, you wouldn't be here
My heart saddend even more
The pin was there like it always had been
Even the bowls were right where you left them
I sat and stared at that old dog pin
Stared so long, the sun became dim
A warm breezed covered everything around
It even blew away ever tear that I'd cried
The beautiful dandilions swayed on the ground
Somehow I felt you by my side
And I could see my grandpaw walking in the sunlight
Although this time I couldn't hold his hand
I walked iwth him until he was out of sight
Then I could clearly understand
Even though I'd walked there alone
On the way back, with me he'd stay
But only we couldn't walk back home
For his home was much farther away
