No Pretense

In the days after we lost our girl
It was just us
 
There was no pretense

It didn’t matter that your hand
was covered with fur
It didn’t matter that you limped
or had an under bite

It didn’t matter that my face
was covered with tears
It didn’t matter that my hair was dirty
or my back hurt

After 13 years
You knew me
I knew you

We didn’t need words
We understood each other

There was no pretense

In the days after we lost our girl
It was just you and me

Thank you for staying
for three more years

I will miss you old friend
forever.

.. until we meet again.

RIP Billy – Love Mom

    I’m so sorry … Dogs are truly some of the most kindred spirits we could ask for.

    If people were just a little bit more like dogs, the world would be a better place.

    Glad you had Billy in your life. ❤
