Puppy Love - Poem by LaTisha Parkinson

I had me a puppy
And I loved him so
He was a little cutie
And followed me wherever I go
He was the best doggie ever
And no dog could top him
But then I had to go
And I couldn’t take him

He was left with my mammi
Which really scared me
Everyone I saw and everywhere I go
I told them about him cuz I loved him so
He was the apple of my eye,
The fruit of my looms
And the seed of my loins
I have no clue what that means
But I love him, as it seems

When I was coming back I was so excited
I hoped that my mother hadn’t killed him
I freaked when I heard
That he was beaten by other dogs
I thought it was the end of his world

Thank god I over reacted
Every minute I played with him
Hugged him and kissed him
That’s how much I missed him

Everything went good...
Until that day….
I slept through it all
He wasn’t eating, nothing at all

When I woke up he was sick
Blood everywhere
I freaked out
Took him to the vet
Cried a lot
When his chances of living were few

I was scared, didn’t know what to do
Begged God not to take him
Because I wasn’t ready
He had a disease that was killing him fast
They put him on drips and hoped he’d last

I had to leave him there
Gave him a kiss and promised I’d be back
I left him, both of us sad

Get a call next morning to learn he’s dead
He didn’t make it through the night
Even thought during the day he put up a fight
But I promised I’d be back
Instead I left him to die like that

This puppy love is killing me
I haven’t yet let go
I’m not quite ready
I miss him so

I want a second chance
I’d take better care of him
More pictures, memories and laughs
I won’t let him die again

This puppy love’s got me hooked
How can I let go
We had a strong bond
Which is now broken
But I still love my puppy
And I miss him dearly
