In Loving Memory of the Latelle family pets:

Chancellor, Kaiser, and Bruiser

Tribute to a Best Friend

Sunlight streams through window pane onto a

spot on the floor…..

then I remember, it’s where you used to lie,

but now you are no more.

Our feet walk down a hall of carpet,

and muted echoes sound…..

then I remember, it’s where your paws

would joyously abound.

A voice is heard along the road,

and up beyond the hill, then I remember,

it can’t be yours….. your golden voice is still.

But I’ll take that vacant spot of floor

and empty muted hall, and lay them

with the absent voice

and unused dish along the wall.

I’ll wrap these treasured memories in a blanket of my love, and keep them for my best friend until we meet above.
