maggie a small red sheparerd

was his shadow in life

he lead she followed.


her sweet brown eyes

watched every move he made

always by his side.


maggie thought she was a cat

she sat on our laps

and slept on our bed.


each night he returned from work

she lay down at his feet

waiting for a good rub.


winter found her

before the fireplace

her deep brown eyes unknowable.


maggie loved snow

romping through drifts

with a black nose cold, eyes bright.


she lived for many years

and when it was time

he took care of it.


we never spoke of it again

he, moving a little slower

was never the same


his little shadow

guard dog, loving pet

gone forever


he too now is gone

from a the blue house we shared

I miss them both.
