…For Max…
My mom’s dog and my friend.
Passed into the next life
And sadly missed.

Going Home

You were my friend always…
Walking by my side.
We would go on our walks…
Through the woods near my parents house.
You never let me wander far
Before you would come
And run around my legs.
Nudging me back toward home
Before the sun would set…
In its pretty sunset colors.

At first you were young…
And we would play for hours.
I would lie in the soft long grass
And you would run to me and jump on me…
Licking my face…

Time never stands still though…
How I wish it had.

As you got older…
The years had passed now
And I became sick
Somehow you knew.
You would come and sit by my side
And rest your head in my lap
When everyone else was having fun and laughing…
You stayed with me.
I never had to say a word…
You just knew.

Sometimes I would get better…
And again we would walk…
And again you would bring me safely home.
Then suddenly I would come crashing down again…
But you remained by my side when I was all alone.

I never thought that you would go…
I never thought I would have to spend a day
Without you.
How I wish for the days…
When we had been young…
Basking and playing in the sun.

You’re gone now Max…
And I am getting sick again
I wonder if you will come from where you are
And sit with me when I am afraid and alone.
I wonder my friend if you will
Stay by my side…
And guide my way home.

We will rest together one day again
Amongst the pretty sunset colors.

  Amazing emotion. I feel like I can relate my german shepherd "snooky" is getting on up in years now. I had her since I was 7. She actually stopped me from killing myself once, I was about to overdose on pills and she needed to go outside. It made me relize that someone did need me here. I just don't know what I'd do without her. Very good write.
Keep it up hun,

  I love this piece! It completely conveys the message of childhood friends, animals or human. and how even if a friend can't talk they're still there for you. I love the imagrey you put into this, "the sunset doors", truly lovely. At the end i wanted a max, :) . Good message and write.

  Nice tribute. I have a cat getting up in years and I know I'll be a wreck when her time finally comes.

Don't worry - you'll see him again.

Peace, love and all that other junk,
