The Big Bone In The Sky - Poem by Christina Ramirez
You cheered me up with the simplest wag of your tail
Or trying to nuzzle with me when I slept on the couch.
Everyone saw a mean dog, yet you were everything but
You'd lick my face when I was sad
Or waited by my feet when I ate
Waited for me by the door when I left the house
And barked at me when I took to long feeding you
You annoyed me when you always had to be rubbed, but what I wouldn't do to rub your head once more
You protected me when we were in the house, barking at anything that dared approach the front door
But now you've gone, I don't have you here leaning against me with your head against my knee asleep
Or the way you'd wag your tail everytime I said your name
I can't walk you around the block
Or throw the ball you loved to chew on
Instead, all I have is a picture and a memory
I don't care if this seems frivolous to others or dumb in their eyes.
You were the only thing that kept me happy with a smile on my face and now you've gone.
I hope the place that your at now, is filled with peanut butter flavored biscuits and endless amounts of tennis balls
Countless back rubbers that continuely rub your belly
And cool grass for you to lay in when the sun is out
And most of all a place where you feel no more pain as when you were here
