Most beautiful thing i had seen in a while

sweet little black and white,

falling in love with your kind brown eye

and striking blue delight

we ran through trees, past worries, in sun

high in pine mountains near home,

i taught you how to climb up rocks

as we went running through the snow

you’d fall asleep in my arms everyday

i was your mommy, your girl,

so much love between us two

forever we’d explore the world

More puppy than most, you needed me there

but i didn’t have the time,

one week later i took you back

knowing a loving family you’d find,

with no other choice i drove you there

shaking and sweating, i cried,

you drew smiles and “aw’s” from everyone you met

trembling, i said goodbye

then you were quarantined for 10 long days

because of puppy bites,

i became an empty home

with sleepless silent nights

Counting days until you were free

i waited to come back for you,

but a phone call that week had other plans

rotten, terrifying, blue

A cut through my heart when i heard the news

sobbing without cease in my car,

when i heard they had made the nauseating decision

to euthanize my baby star

my first and only, my little friend

Zander, i grieve everyday

the snow is melting, your water bowl empty,

but here in my heart, you’ll stay.
