It’s been a week since you’ve been gone and I feel no better yet
because everywhere that I go, I just cannot forget.
Your sister tries to fill the hole that you have left in my heart
but nothing can repair the way I feel now we are apart.
Since you’ve gone, Myschka and I have gone in the car
to go for our walks, because she cannot walk far.
We have been walking the parkland, every day
we do one of the parks, where you both used to play.
I remember those walks through that parkland we had
and seeing those places again just makes me sad.
I remember when you would drag me on to see
if there were some apples lying under the tree.
You loved to eat apples, you would always want more
and when I ate my apple I’d give you my core.
So now ev’ry apple I eat I think of you
and all the endearing other things that you’d do.
In the ev’ning there’s a space where you used to lie
so peacefully asleep, just Myschka, you and I.
I keep longing to hear you snoring there again,
but now you are sleeping peacefully in Heaven.
