Letting Go

Letting Go

written by: Dianne Moritz


Do you spit out words

as you might a bite of bruised apple?

Do you say: Today my dog died?

Do you tell how you watched the light

fade from her soulful eyes,

nothing left but bones and soft fur?

Should you mention you cried out,

wanting to kill the messenger?

Oh, how this longing hurts, sometimes

believing, hoping she will amble back

home, tail thumping, cold nose pressed

against your lonely hand…
