Fifteen Years Since Eternity

Fifteen Years Since Eternity

Fifteen years since you were a little pup, sitting snug upon my lap;

I’d give you head and tummy rubs, then you’d take a tiny nap!

We had known each other just fourteen weeks, but the first day that we met;

We knew our souls would never part, for eternity they were set!

 

I taught you how to read and write, you taught me Buddha’s Way;

Our love was so insatiable, it grew stronger every day!

We basked in beauties bountiful, at night laid side by side;

As the sun arose I’d hold you close, whilst heart secrets we’d confide!

 

We shared such years of ecstasy, enrapt in each other’s love;

But longevity caught up to us, and you floated up above!

But fifteen years ago we pledged, our bond would last for e’er;

Through eternity our love will live, and our souls we’ll ever share!

I taught you how to read and write, you taught me Buddha's Way;

On the surface, this line/claim may seem a little far-fetched (pun intended)...but anyone who has ever loved and lived with a dog knows precisely what you mean and just how true it is.

A sweet and elegant poem from a sweet and elegant pen.

your friend & fan,

HI Larry.....I wonder how much my Haven knows how to read and write....I never put him to the test about it....but he has certainly heard me read aloud to my kids and some of must have sunk it...lol  Dogs are a part of the family and anyone that has ever loved one knows that they teach us more than we teach them....lol  Enjoyed...relatable.  xox Love n Hugs, Cherie

My Dear Cherie,

I knew Nico could read and write, because, he would read me the "riot act" if I did something that was not right.  Of course, in my poem, I used the "read and write" as hyperbole.  But, in all sincerity, you're absolutely right that they teach us a lot more than we teach them.  

Hugs, Peace and Love,

Larry xxx

My darling, that is so beautiful!

Nico was our baby and grew up to became our special little man, who I simply adore as much as I adore you and my Linda and our little Cody. That photograph of him is my favourite one! I sent our little man a great big hug and lots of kisses too, as I read this piece sweetie.

You always express your grief so well in your work, and by doing so, you also help me, and so tenderly too, I will always treasure that sweetie.

Each one of your poems are simply priceless, they are all so beautiful to read and they comfort me in my grief too. Our Nico is watching as you write and we all know that because of E.S.P he knows your thoughts, and in doing so, he is therefore able to read your poems, that`s how animals communicate and he feels so very proud of his daddy and always will do. I`m hugging you all as I write.

Well done sweetie, I`m very, very proud of you, your talent, your heart and your soul are amazing and I love you deeply my darling.

Love G xx

My Dearest G,

This is one of the most beautiful letters I have ever received.  It has brought tears to my eyes.  I am so very happy that when you read these works, that they bring you some peace and solace.  If my poems are priceless, your love far supersedes that, but I don't know of a word in the English language that exists for it.  I must confess that your words also make me very sad, because I can't be there to hold you in my arms.  Imagine how wonderful it would be if we were neighbors.  So, we do the next best thing, sending our love across the ocean, yet wishing we could bring it in person.  Having expressed all this love for you too, it's going to be very hard on me when I clobber you in the next Twit Contest.  

Our Love Forever,

Linda, Larry and Little Cody xxx
