I wrote this almost a year ago, after my sweet puppy was killed in a car accident.

I lost you, my special friend today,
You were taken suddenly
An accident of grave outcome,
No warning or time to flee.

From a puppy until now
Sweet Umby my precious boy,
You brought me such happiness
You were my source of joy.

I had a favored saying,
An expression oh so true.
"I love this puppy" I would declare
My words of love to you.

Now, today, you are gone
My heart an empty space.
I can still here you barking
And still more see your face.

I feel so alone without you
As tears fall from my eyes
I know if you were here
you'd kiss away my cries.

If I had just one more day
I'd share these words with you
I'd tell you you're a good boy
no matter what you do.

Umby, my sweet Umby
If only I had known
today would be the last
balls and sticks to be thrown

If I had known these would be
Our last moments to share
I wouldn't have minded the rain
I would not have even cared

But, I didn't get to tell you
I didn't get to say
The words I always told you
"I love this puppy", today......

This is such a sweet poem. No lack of emotion here...and with good reason. There are fewer things in life sadder that the loss of a pet. You expressed it well

Very touching, Sraet. I also lost my puppy by an auto accident. It was heartbreaking.
You have expressed the sadness very well.

Thanks for you kind words, although it has been a year I do still feel the pain in this poem (I actually have a printed and framed copy on my wall with his collar and playthings). Only someone who has ever loved a pet can understand.
