Since you been gone
Ever since you left, I’m always thinking of you, I do not want to forget you.
The loss of a dog is a heavy blow, only those who have experienced this once, knows what this means. A pet is part of the family, but when it’s no longer there, most people keep thinking, “How things have changed since you left …”
Everyone copes with this loss in different ways, but perhaps you also identify with the author of a letter, which you can then read.
Ever since you left, I’m constantly thinking of you …
Every day when I get home, I slowly open the door, careful not to slap it in the face, then I remember that you are no longer there. Every morning when I wake up, I whistle, look for you and wait for you to say good morning. Then I realize that you are not here anymore.
The seat cushion that you loved so much is empty, now it seems ugly and sad. Because it was you who made something special out of him, if that’s what you meant.
I look at your bed and bowl, I have not had the courage to remove them, I fill them with food and water, hoping that you will come back. But I know that’s not possible. I would choose you again and again if I could, and I hope that’s what you think too.
Since you been gone…
Since you left, all I want to do is sit on the sofa and look into the void. I remember our shared experiences that no one can take from me.
I’ve never been a lover of photos, but how happy I am that I have some of us! I do not want to forget you, I want your little face to always come to my mind when I think about you and I know the photos will help me. How can I forget you? You have been such an important part of my life! Since you’re gone, I’m very scared …
Ever since you left, I’m still looking at your shampoo, towel, perfume … the perfume that always made you sneeze and run away. When I saw this for the first time, I thought you were obsessed.
How much we laughed together! How much you made me laugh! Since you’re gone, I’m barely smiling, I think it’s just a matter of time. But you were one of the reasons for my laughter, one of the reasons for my joy, one of the joys of my life.
Since you been gone…
Ever since you left, I always think of you when I walk by the park, when I take out the garbage, because you always wanted to come with me. If I pass the vet, I have bad memories, we said goodbye there. But I remember it well when I brought you to the vet for the first time.
At the first vaccination you trembled with fear, I wanted to comfort you, to be your mother and father at the same time. After the barber you were always beautiful, like a ball of yarn. I wanted to hug you, but you did not like it.
Ever since you left, I’m always thinking of you, I do not want to forget you. I think about our moments together, to master the bitter time and not to think about our farewell. Everything is different since you left. I know that I will smile again because the friendship we had was worth it. My smile will be the best gift for you, wherever you are.
