saying goodbye




not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us,
these quiet friends,
 is that they carry away with them
so many years of our own lives.

we lost our little ellie girl yesterday.
it was heartbreaking
and incredibly difficult,
but it was time.
she was desperately sick.


it was so strange waking up without her this morning.
she snuggled to sleep with me every night for years.
but I felt a small comfort
knowing that wherever she is,
she’s no longer in pain.


goodbye, sweet girl.
you will be so missed.
