I have never really uttered those words,
Before your dead body.
My tears I tried to hide.
But deep within I cried.
Yet, time led me to remember you.
So, this opportunity I take,
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 had her puppies too.
Yet, none ever show,
To become one as motherly as –
My ever loving Pocahontas.
