  • Poetry: Room In Your Heart




    ROOM IN YOUR HEART

    Sorrow fills a barren space;

    you close your eyes and see my face

    and think of times I made you laugh,

    the love we shared, the bond we had,

    the special way I needed you -

    the friendship shared by just we two.

    The day's too quiet, the world seems older,

    the wind blows now a little colder.

    You gaze into the empty air

    and look for me, but I'm not there -

    I'm in heaven and I watch you,

    and I see the world around you too.

    I see little souls wearing fur,

    souls who bark and souls who purr

    born unwanted and unloved -

    I see all this and more above -

    I watch them suffer, I see them cry,

    I see them lost, I watch them die.

    I see unwanted thousands born -

    and when they die, nobody mourns.

    These little souls wearing fur

    (Some who bark and some who purr)

    are castaways who - unlike me -

    will never know love or security.

    A few short months they starve and roam,

    Or caged in shelters - nobody takes home.

    They're special too (furballs of pleasure),

    filled with love and each one, a treasure.

    My pain and suffering came to an end,

    so don't cry for me, my person, my friend.

    But think of the living -

    those souls with fur

    (some who bark and some who purr) -

    And though our bond can't be broken apart,

    make room for another in your home and your heart.

      I should have read your post first, but instead I read the poem first! The girls here at work just asked if I was okay! *sniff* Thanks for posting the poem, makes me remember my dogs that are up there waiting for me.
