Swoop

it's funny how you were the one
who was always afraid of everything
yet looking back at times in my life
when I myself was scared
and pretty much everyone had gone away
or just didn't understand
how very real the fear was that coursed thru my blood
you were the one who stayed
you were always there when j was in pain
you were brave
kept me held close within your gentle embrace
never strayed
like after my surgery
before it too
you held up in that bed with me night and day
much like the time when you were just a pup
and I came down with something and couldn't get up
for two days you stayed in bed
without even a complaint
just laying beside me
quietly
loving me.
or the time when we went up to Santa Barbara
to find out wtf was up with Kevin
and he left
and I was so tired
there was no way I could have driven all the way back
and it was scary out there in the car that night
especially when the weird man came up to the car
but you protected me
from him and the cold
it was freezing remember
and you laid on top of me
like a blanket for hours until I could go ring Kevin's moms door to use the bathroom.
I hope I can be brave to
and let you go
because I think it's time to.
I'll miss you so much
and it hurts to think
that you
my little swoopy do
won't be with me
after today.
