Coming Home: a reblog

Maggie would have been 18 today. She is never far from our thoughts.


Coming Home:

They come to me in dreams,
Those I love, but now sadly gone,
No words are said, there’s no need,
They are coming home.
Last night was a restless sleep,
Alone in the dark I stirred,
Got up and walking inside
My vision began to blur.
You were there, but I knew you weren’t,
So real, how I wanted it to be,
You raised your head in greeting,
And wagged your tail at me.
Curled up where I usually sit,
Something you’d never before done,
It seemed right and I let you sleep,
Those last two years were gone.
Your picture looked down from above,
Your eyes bright, coat shiny, no pain,
My beautiful baby had come home,
My heart was complete again.
You came to me in a dream,
You were never that far away,
I returned to bed and slept,
You found your way home today.

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.

    If I were to have another dog then a collie pup would be one of my top choices.
