Mollie

By Bruce Clifford

In memory of Mollie 4/15/98 Ė 9/6/16 RIP
I remember the day we first took you home
Seems like yesterday with all of these years gone by
You did your own things and mingled and caused some fuss
I donít regret any of our time

Now this house is so empty without you
You were part of our family, our home
So many memories keep rushing through me
Without you we feel so alone

This family is missing a piece without you
You must now be in a better place
Itís just so hard for me sitting here
Knowing we canít see your face

I remember you scratching my feet from under the bed
Making us watching you eat
Sometimes you were looking for attention in wonderful ways
You always came running for a treat

Now this house is so empty without you
You were part of our family, our home
So many reasons to miss you so much
Without you we feel so alone

Sometimes we can still hear your sounds
Even though we know you are gone
Thank you for loving us unconditionally
And for having so much courage for you to move on

©9/9/16 Bruce Clifford
