We often walked this path
Together you and I,
Rain or shine,
Content in each other’s company.
Such peace and tranquility
When we needed time to chill.
We’d put the worries behind us,
Enjoy the song of the birds,
And rustle of the leaves
Caressed by the breeze.
Side by side we’d walk,
An hour, maybe two,
Step by step in perfect time,
How I miss you.
We shared the seasons,
Counted our blessings,
Two souls a part of each other,
Now one stands alone.
I scattered your ashes in your special place,
Now you can chase rabbits and squirrels
To your heart’s content.
You will always be here,
Enjoying rainbows
And the fresh scent of the rain.
We will be together again,
One man and his dog.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
