I love you so much little guy
I know you know this
Even though you don't respond when i say it
like you do when i say "treat" or "squirrel"
I can see it in your face
you know something is not right
and there is nothing i can do to save you.
You have been an anchor while I struggle
now I am trying to be there for you
in what may be your final hours.
almost a full year
since the vet said it was not looking good
but you persisted day after day
but now i am reminded
cannot last forever.
