Gone Now

by Angela Kempe


The creek rushes and Sam goes running,

After leaves drifting down stream.

The water shushes, my tears are hiding,

And the day blurs like a dream.


The trees are stirring as I’m walking,

But leaves have long since gone.

So branches crackle, bending, moaning,

As they try to carry on.


A ray of light breaks through the grey sky,

And I could smile at how,

You are like the snow that melted,

Beloved, but gone now.


(For my soul dog, George, who lived a good 15 years)
