Pawprints Left By You

You no longer greet me,
As I walk through the door.
You're not there to make me smile,
To make me laugh anymore.
Life seems quiet without you,
You were far more than a pet.
You were a family member, a friend
. . . a loving soul I'll never forget.
It will take time to heal -
For the silence to go away.
I still listen for you,
            And miss you every day.
            You were such a great companion,
            Constant, loyal and true.
            My heart will always wear,
            the pawprints left by you.
