I have never really uttered those words before your dead body.
My tears I tried to hide.
So, your passing seemed all but nothing.
But time led me to remember you.
Now I take this opportunity,
To utter the words, never before said.
And express how much you were appreciated.
You were such a good mother;
Breastfeeding puppies that do not come from her;
Getting lice out of every dog’s hair;
Giving each one all your cares.
I have never seen another dog,
As gentle and loving as you.
I mourn your loss;
Waiting, hoping a dog like you,
Would come in the days to come.
Mulan is to have her own puppies soon.
I wish from her will come,
Another Pocahontas as motherly as you.
