For Abigail Belle

 Abigail Belle

So much to say in an
adieu where words will
surely fail; tears are real
enough, trembling lips
revealing heartache
that prevails.

We say our last
goodbyes in pallid
sighs with salty eyes
red-rimmed still
leaking salutations
for your passing on.

This tiny grave is
filled with strident
song now that you rest
at peace at last along
with all your earnest
doggy dreams...
