My Barney

By Caprice, Border, Wyoming

 

November 2011 issue

 

 

 

Barney, my little friend lies here

Complete in all save breath.

Hes just the same as yesterday,

His little face, so calm in sleep.

 

But, Oh!, that change!

Which all of us so dread,

With tearful eyes I stand, I gaze,

He cant be dead! He sleeps.

 

Soon he will awake and lick my hand.

I know that he will be with me today.

Hell run about the yard.

Hell chase his cats and play.

Hell leap into my arms to snuggle down.

Hell breathe a sigh, content.

 

My little Barney is not dead.

Such gentle souls forever live,

In boundless measure of the tender love

they, forever, give.

 

My little Barney, my sweet little Min-Pin, struck down in my driveway by a speeding truck. Ten and one-half years we lived in love together. Caprice. April 5, 2011
