Henry

Jagged is the hole that’s left within,
Raw are the memories where you have been

Torn feels my soul, it’s ripped in two,
Yearning for the comfortable weight of you

Strong our connection, I feel it here
In the beat of my heart- the drumming in my ear

Warmth and love surround me still,
Vibrations of energy the atmosphere fill

I dream and think, and dream some more,
Longing for you to walk through the door

Letting you go was hard to do,
Given a choice I would have kept you..

Here by my side forever, my friend,
Your life with me was Heaven-sent

My friend, my pal, my loyal Henry,
Saying ‘goodbye’ I felt so sorry

I wouldn’t have chosen this path for you
But given the circumstance what could I do?

I listened to my heart, I did my best,
And surely, indeed I was put to the test

But our bond didn’t waver, even to the end,
On your final day I could only send

My love, my gratitude and deep emotion
With you as you crossed to the rainbow ocean

With love and grace you completed your journey,
So peaceful and calm, it completely overwhelmed me

But deep inside I knew it was time,
And if you could tell me, you’d say I did fine

In spite of this and all that I know,
I still couldn’t bear to let you go

And so I continue to feel bereft,
A great chasm yawns where you have left

That jagged hole is left within,
And raw are the memories where you have been.
