I wish I could have told you,
in words you'd understand,
I wanted you to stay with me.
This wasn't what I'd planned.
I wish somehow to tell you,
How empty I now feel.
A part of me went with you,
A part that time can't heal.
I wish I'd once more hear you,
as in the morning you would stir,
could hold you on my lap again
and stroke your lovely fur.
I wish that you could make me see
A way through all the pain,
and that I did not let you down
but set you free again.
I wish I had you back with me,
to fill this empty space.
But one day we'll be together
in a far, far better place.

It seems to be the evening for emotional words! A lovely poem for anyone who has lost a pet, thanks for sharing it.
