It was last winter.

At Christmas.

I took you for a long walk

Down the ancient way.


The funny dog was on the leash

But you

As always


Right next to me


Until you weren’t

And I couldn’t see you

I called

But you can’t hear anymore


I wasn’t worried

Of course

You were fine



You went to go lay down

In the woods

And sleep

For the rest of ever


But you didn’t seem




It was weird

Where were you

If not

By me


Back at the house

That’s where


You hadn’t

Gone to the woods

To die


But you had

Gone home

To sleep
