My Dog Has Died - Poem by Eloida Capuno

She passed away today
My dog of nine years
She went quietly as she
did when I first had her on a box
With her pleading eyes
And gentle stance

I may not be able to write
As beautifully as Neruda
In paying tribute to this
Faithful friend
Who kept watch over us
Day in and out
But the lesson I learned
I will forever keep in my heart

She maybe gone for good
And I will not be able to
Return the goodness of a beast
Who kept loving till the end
While i remained untouched
Cold and distant

My dog has died
And she was buried
Along with the sadness
I saw in her eyes
I knew I gave her less
Than she deserved
But she will always be
Remembered with fondness

    It is very sad.... I still remember our 2 dogs who passed away. It was the most sadest day in my whole life. Even though I didn't really loves Megan, I still was sad, she was my father's best friend. And Cutie dieded from skin cancer. (Report) Reply
