Char Super, The Love Of My Life


Recommended Posts

I can't believe it has been five years since I lay on the floor next to you and stroked your face and knew it was time. Five years since you looked up at me in fear when you saw the needle, then acceptance as it entered your vein. Five years since I told you I was sorry that I couldn't afford more extreme measures, but it was cancer, and you were hurting, and I couldn't fix you. Five years since I lost my wonder puppy, my bounce-back, my angel. We were fated to be together, you and I.


Five years ago today, I let go of my handsome Char Super, my Cooper Dog. My goofy boy, my Crown Prince/Clown Prince. I still miss him every day.


Memoriam Veritas



As you slip beyond the clouds of memory,


Know this final gift has cost my heart.


No greater loss, no misery, no tragedy


Could pierce my soul with depth no words can chart.



You lived to love, and gave us pure devotion,


No less devotion can I then return


Though thinking of you now brings mixed emotions,


And causes tears of grief to form and burn.



My prince, my true companion in adventures,


I set you free to soar on winds of change.


I cannot hold you back, nor can I censure


The pain that carves a scar which will remain.



Forever, love, run free of pain and sorrow,


I'll dream of you each night for all my years.


And if my end should come next year, tomorrow


I'll run to meet you, blinded by my tears.



As you slip beyond the clouds of memory,


Look back once so that you may remember me...
