farewell little one

the sooner I write this
 the sooner it will sink in
that today
there are just
two of us in the house
this morning we had to call the vet to come
and now we are two

she lived with us for 17 years
almost as long as the boys
and she  took their place when they both left
she kept me company when the husband was still working
and he adored her just as much as I
he is the one who found the strength this morning to call
and he is the one who oh so gently wrapped her in a big fluffy yellow towel
that he insisted I give him
even though he's had pain in his feet recently
he managed to make a place for her outside
and he bid her farewell
as he covered her up
it already feels so strange with out her
and it's going to take a long time to get over this

bye bye baby girl
we loved you so much
and we are so sad to have to let you go
