The House is Empty Now by Tom Kelsall
I miss her big smile, bark and wagging tail at the front door each day after work.
I miss the walks in the park and her constant sniffing. Her nose surely knows.
I miss her playfulness and fetching her red ball.
I miss her supervising me while I was mowing the lawn and shoveling snow.
I miss giving her a belly rub.
Thank you, sweet Oreo, for your gentle, loving and playful companionship and for being my shadow for the past nine years.
The house is empty now.
