A Poem For Bob

sinking to the floor

of the veterinary surgery

my darling old boy

breathes goodbye

 

smiling kindness

into my shocked and

tearless eyes

 

the nurse brings

the green injection

that will bring peace

 

but as i hold

his body to my heart

 

i see him

 

storming the racetrack

at Romford in the days

before he came to me

 

standing amongst sharp

grasses on our daily walks

 

moving the space between

sea and sky as clouds

explode the daylight

Farewell Bob

 

What a powerful poem for Bob... it really shows the raw emotion of the moment. I am so sorry. :(

Forever and always missing my "Vowels", Icarus, Atlas, Orion, Uber, and Miss Echo, and Mojito.

I am so sorry. :grouphug Run free sweet Bob. :candle

Greyhound angels at the bridge- Casey, Charlie, Maggie, Molly, Renie, Lucy & Teddy. Beagle angels Peanut and Charlie. And to all the 4 legged Bridge souls who have touched my heart, thank you. When a greyhound looks into you eyes it seems they touch your very soul.
