For today's prompt, we were asked to write about loss. I created the following Kyrielle about a friend.

You Were Mine

For Oliver.

When I first saw you, I was caught
By your blue eyes and hair so fine.
I fell in love upon the spot,
And for a short time, you were mine.

Together we would laugh and play;
Each night, together we would dine.
You’d watch for me at end of day,
And for a short time, you were mine.

You never should have died so young:
The number of your lives was nine.
I wept as to your paw I clung,
And for a short time, you were mine.

Our animal friends are very special. I am glad you had time with him.

I see you, I hear you... Peace to you.

Nick Wilford said...

Aww, that was very sweet. Sorry about your loss.

Is that Oliver in the picture?

Yes, that's my favourite photo of him.
