I Die With Them

I Die With Them

Copyright 2012 Gordon Kuhn

Poet in the Rain Productions

I look into their eyes

And I die with them.

For I cannot stop the pain that rises

To pummel my emotions raw

At the loss of a pet

Yours or mine,

or the dog lost by the side of the road.

It matters not if I know their name

Nor if they shared my time

I simply collapse within from pain

At the parting when life becomes still

And the soul leaves the shell

And that which once was there is no more

And the tears fall without any shame.                                                             August 5, 2012
