Honey (My Dog: R.I.P. 3/2/11)



To my inspiration and Honey
What am I now to do
You hold stature and strengths for me
No one really knew
You were mine and things
Were not to happen this way
You were such a happy dog
Tomorrow you were supposed to play
I made promises to not
Repeat mistakes of my past
And no matter what happened in life
You and I were to last
I wanted you to experience the weather
We were all waiting for
Now all I feel is your ghostly presence
When I open the back door
I want to keep all the hairs of you
I find everywhere in my house
The last day I held you in my arms
I don't want to wash that blouse
I grab your collar to my heart
Hold it close to me tight
It's the only part of you I get to keep
After losing you that night
I don't know what to think
There's nothing that can replace
The joy that you gave me inside
Just looking at your face
Standing with you more protected
Than an army of a thousand men
Most times you were sweet
And for me, there to defend
I'ill miss the stare you gave others
When you sat straight up on the couch
Like it was your space
They were in your house
Or how you'd move your head back and forth
When you heard a funny noise
Or how big plastic baseball bats
Were your favorite toys
How about when you'd run into the wall
First thing in the morning
How you kept anyone up at night
With your loud snoring
Now I walk into the house
To picture you running towards me
Over-anxious that I am home
Letting me know you have to pee
I can sit and tell so much memories
And all of you I think in words
But there is so much more I'm missing
More inside of me that hurts
I still don't get when people say
You waited your last breath
To let your momma know you'd be okay
In your last minutes of rest
For I still don't feel that part
All I could remember is your eyes
Scared and full of fear
Of a pain you did not recognize
All I could do is smother you in kisses
Not enough for what you've done
You were my moon in the night
You were my morning sun
