a poem for Tess

Author's Note: This is a poem for my dog, Tessa. She was a Labrador cross Basset and she was 4 years old when I lost her... I was about 7.

so sorry you're gone
so sad you had to go
time I had with you wasn't long
but I loved you so.
my best animal friend
loved your droopy ears
why did it have to end?
and end in tears?
why did it have to be?
I still love you
and I'm sure you still love me.
maybe, up there
you're still missing
your best human friend.
so sorry you're gone
so sad you had to go
time I had with you wasn't long
but I loved you so
and I don't know
why you had to go
my best animal friend
my sweet companion
why did it have to end?
and end in tears?
I loved your droopy ears
and your deep brown eyes
and your comforting slow sighs
when I was sad
you'd come to me
and put your head on my lap
I miss that.
I miss you
so sorry you're gone
so sad you had to go
time I had with you wasn't long
but I loved you so

♥Love you Tess♥ 
What did you think? I miss her so much.
