(Following the passing of yellow lab Patrick Henry “McDude”)
Missing you, I walked our paths
Seeing the hidden pond you liked
I found two mallard couples, swimming
in slow circles
Looking for you or a paw print or a
sign of you
Deer prints like hearts pressed into
I looked up just in time to see a group
Lofting on the currents of wind
Drawing their fleeting pictures
Then their disappearing shapes on the
I hear your huffing to let me know you
Or maybe your sound etched in my memory
Guiding my steps in search of comfort
Sweet friend of my heart.
