my best friend Dave
by dennis bollinger
Dave you were my best friend
you suffered from dementia the last year of your life
sometimes i think i waited too long
but the thought of my life without you clouded my judgment
i did the best i could do
feeding you and helping you go potty
you came to me when i was lost
maybe you were too, but you saved me
for 12 years you were my best friend thru good times and bad
i still talk to you every night
the day i had to leave you after you were gone haunts me to this day
the little stray that came to me after you were gone
i know came from you to help me thru
thank you for being my dog and best friend
till we meet again my friend
i will always love you Dave
