I Lost The Best Friend I Ever Had Today

Every once in a while
We are reminded-
Abruptly, and when
Least expected-
How short and tenuous
Life really is.

I felt that pain today,
Of all days, when my friend
And sidekick, my pal,my buddy-
Buster The weenie dog passed away!

My little friend that always rode
With me on my rascal scooter,
Up and down the neighborhoods
Snapping pictures as we went-
Driving through the Beverage
Drive-Ins getting a tea and his water.
Making runs with my scooter in the
McDonald’s drive-thru’s for a small
Order of McNuggets—yes, for him—
It was his favorite treet!

I will miss every little thing the past
Six and a half years allowed us to share.
I wish it could have been six years more—
But, alas, it was not to be…….
God knew far better than me.

Now in the snowstorm blowing
The white flakes falling
I commit my friend and companion
To his eternal rest.
A special place for him to lay
Under the snow and earth he’ll stay—
To Rest until Heaven’s gate.

I Lost The Best Friend I Ever Had Today by 

death of my buddy,companion, and best friend.

I love to share my photography and artwork with people, hoping they will see life from a little bit of a different angle than most folks~ I am in a wheelchair and from my perspective I feel like I see things that many others miss out on, even something as simple as the way the wind blows a dandelion seed across the ground. I try to pass this along. I hope you enjoy my work.
