Years From Now

YEARS FROM now, I wouldn’t remember how you walk, how you run.

I wouldn’t remember how you drink, how you eat.

Years from now I wouldn’t remember how you played with us, how you scratch your ears.

I wouldn’t remember how you sometimes peed in our bed, how you chase people entering our house.

Years from now I wouldn’t remember how you bark at people, how you run out of the house letting us chase you.

I wouldn’t remember how you lick our faces, how you waited for your little pieces of bread.

Years from now I wouldn’t remember how you ate ham every New Year’s Eve. I wouldn’t remember how you hated chicken.

Years from now I may forget all about the things you did or didn’t do..

But years from now, I will always remember you. I will always remember how a Deirdre walked in our life and made a big change.

Years from now I might forget all about the things you did or didn’t do.

But years from now I will always remember that you love and protected us. I will always remember a Deirdre who unquestionably gave us love and happiness.

Years from now I will never forget how I found a friend and a family in you Didie.




Atmosphere talked it isn’t home, atleast not anymore.

I tried to search for her knowing she’s not coming back.

Her little cries, making sound. Her barks, I wouldn’t hear anymore.

Her little body, finding herself to bed. Her warmth, I wouldn’t feel anymore.

Her licks, her kisses wetting our faces, I wouldn’t get any anymore.

Her claws, making scars I wouldn’t be wounded anymore.

Her eyes, her eyes.. I will always remember.

Her eyes I couldn’t stare anymore. Her eyes I couldn’t talk to anymore.

In your presence.. we found friendship inspite of not tapping our shoulders. We found love inspite of not saying anything. We found family inspite of the difference.

Our little mini pinscher wherever you may be, you’ve been a part of our life and always will be.

Wherevee you may be, we know you loved us. We know you protected us.

You are loved Didie, Our little Deirdre.
