Cotton
12/5/2004 - 7/11/2019On Monday you woke up spirits high
You didn't feel the pain in your legs
You just felt good
Did your business
Patrolled your domain
It was a good morning
On Monday I came home
There was a glint still in your eye
You dug your head into the garden
Found a favorite ball
I didn't even know was there
From 4 feet away I tossed
You pounced. Stumbled but grabbed
The glint was there
You said again And again
4 or 5 times till it was too much
But you were happy in the moment
On Thursday your gone
But in a better place.
