I watched the light go out.
June 23rd, 2014

She just wanted to go
to ride in the car
everytime I grabbed
my keys she knew

She would sit in my way
and look up at me
excited to go-go
she just wanted to ride

This time she rode
happy, standing at
the window in the wind
she pushed the button

Down it went
all the way open
And she flew
for a moment

I found her standing
bleeding, tired, looking
up at me like she did
at the door

Hours at the vet
x-rays, pain medication
and big band aids on
every foot.

She didn’t slip past
this time.  This was
not like all the other times
when she just walked away

I held her head
and whispered to her
looking into her eyes
and I watched the light go out.
**I’ll miss you Rosie**
