Marley

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
your story
our story
cannot last forever.
