In Remembrance

Walking the dogs on Godrevy beach at low water

To Me, You Will Always Be
(for CH, who lost Doc on 01/01/1999)
By Elizabeth Cutright

To me, you will always be…
running after rocks,
and chasing your own tail;
that goofy smile across your face,
pawing me in a muddy embrace.

To me, you will always be…
the one that was up for anything –
who made a game of it all.
Life was just one big adventure,
punctuated by lunch and dinner.

To me, you will always be…
the one I could depend on,
the ear that was always there.
Beside me when the world felt hostile –
you made anything seem possible.

To me, you will always be…
the one I’ll miss when the leaves are falling,
the one I’ll search for in the snow.
The summer sun will be cold without you,
but every spring your spirit’s home.

Sometimes my heart will feel empty
and I’ll listen for your voice,
I won’t be saddened by your absence
because I know your soul is free.
To me…you will always Be.
