I miss you already.
Once the light is out and the room is silent,
I will miss you even more.
“Remember the time…” fills the house already.
Once the light is out and the house is silent
I will remember you even more…
Like how you taught me to pause, take a deep breath, and jump to find my joy
To take solace in the silence of the forest on a winter’s afternoon
Blaze new trails
To sniff the air, shake off the rain, and search for whatever it is I’m looking for
without ever giving up.
You taught me that I needn’t dress to the trends to look good
And how I don’t need anyone to help scratch my back.
For sixteen years, your puppy antics
have made me laugh, cry, and grow – opening my heart sixty times six sizes tall.
The flame’s now snuffed.
The house is silent.
The light has gone from your eyes
leaving my life far brighter and richer
than I could ever have expected.
Thank you Jazzy
for your loyalty and love,
