We Have A Secret Poem

This is non real estate related but I saw a FB friend’s post where her beloved dog passed away today.  My 12 year old yellow lab Benny passed away on January 17th and this brought back sad memories.  This beautiful poem brings back special memories of Benny and honors all the pets that someone lost.

We Have A Secret

Benny exploring

We have a secret, you and I

that no one else shall know,

for who but I can see you lie

each night in fire glow?

And who but I can reach my hand

before we go to bed

and feel the living warmth of you

and touch your silken head?

And only I walk woodland paths

and see ahead of me,

your small form racing with the wind

so young again, and free.

And only I can see you swim

in every brook I pass

and when I call, no one but I

can see the bending grass.
