Remembering You

The day you arrived, running in the backyard
Until the day you could barely move
You always stood guard
Like you had something to prove

Playing tug of war
Taking turns pulling each other around the room
Was most definitely not a chore
We worked up a sweat I assume

Though you loved ice
The whining for them was unbearable
Cutting them down would have to suffice
Maybe that's why you were always under a table

Summers swimming in the lake
Pushing a ball with your snout
You even made a little wake
Shaking the water off when you got out

The last days were full of pain
We said our goodbyes just in case
Anything you did would put constrain
Tears streaming down my face

My love grew
Remembering you
