My mind’s in turmoil
My heart is torn two ways
Little did I know
That tonight would be in such dismay

As tears streak down my cheeks
Down Memory Lane I take a peek
There he sat in a small cage,
A contented yawn and sleepy gaze.

Midnight black with two white socks,
Emblazoned on his chest- a bold, bright cross
Round as a ball on four small paws,
In love I fell, the first sight I saw.

Took him home in my arms,
First thing he did was pee all around.
My father yelled, my mother sighed,
But I melted when I saw his puppy dog eyes.

In time he grew
Mischievous and gay
Prancing around, causing trouble
Mayhem and dismay

A scolding I would give
And with a guilty look, he received.

With downcast eyes and drooped tail
Begging for forgiveness

The clicking of his nails echoing throughout the room
Trembling from head to foot,
To me he ran for comfort.

Took him into my arms,
Hugged him close to my heart,
Hid my face in his fur,
He could not understand why the tears.

Stroking him soothingly,
Reluctantly I let him go
Lies and empty promises
That everything will be okay- I told.

The lethal needle slid home
Within seconds he was struggling to stand.
As life left his body and bone
He weakly lay down and put his head near my hand.

With a breaking heart,
I leaned down to whisper a tearful goodbye
He looked at me with glazed over eyes
