Fifty Shades Of Gray

Fifty Shades Of Gray

My precious Angel Nico 7-26-01 to 2-16-15

Since that fateful night fifty months ago, when you had to sail away;
I have mourned each one incessantly, with a different shade of gray!
Every month I’d heal a little bit, some darkness disappeared;
But, the pain was never-ending, for my lost Soulmate so endeared!
.
I wrote about you often, with odes so sorrow filled;
Describing my broken heart and Soul, and the tears I ever spilled!
For you were the center of my Universe, you taught me how to love;
God sent you down to be with me, my gift from up above!
.
Because of you, we got our Cody, so you would have a little bro;
From the moment that you met him, you loved your brother so!
I watched in such amazement, as my doggies frolicked and played;
The greatest joy I’d ever known, if only you could have stayed!
.
But four years now, and two months ago, your life came to an early end;
Not yet fourteen years of age, back to Heaven, I had you send!
But I never will forget you, you will live forever in my Soul;
My love for you is eternal, my heart you ever stole!
.
.
Fifty shades of gray
Each month without my Nico
Has brought pains colors

My Dear Silent Dreamer,

Sorry for the late reply, but Linda has just finished her first week at a new, very demanding job.
Dear Nico was a one in a million, and I will love him forever.
I feel his and Cody's presence, surrounding me every day.
Thank you for your most beautiful words.

All my love,

Ah, Larry, such a heartbreaking, beautiful piece of poetry. I know how it feels a doggy loved one dies. I know why they are called 'man's best friend'. Excellent, my friend.  Barry x

My Dear Friend Barry,

Thank you kind sir, for you most endearing words of comfort and support.
When Nico was a puppy, I used to sing the Bee Gees song "More Than A Woman", and substitute "puppy" for "woman", for to me, he was not just a little doggie, but my Soulmate.

Love you, bro,
Larry xxx

My Dear S.zaynab.kamoonpury,

Sorry for the late reply.
Thank you so much for your most lovely praise.
My Nico's love was beyond anything I had ever experienced.
Then came Cody, and Nico taught him how to love too.
I will love them both till the ends of time.

Love,
