We can never forget Tomy

When we had him in our arms,
Peaceful was the house.
He would lay his head on our lap,
And look into our eyes to take away the stress.
Would greet us with so much joy,
As we were the only family he had got.
Was a beautiful creature that knew only to give,
Unconditional love was what we received.
As he became old and weak,
We were left broken and hurt.
None can replace his love for us,
For he never stopped wagging his tail.
I often wondered that it might be human soul inside him,
As he made us so happy in pain.
When the day came, it was horrible,
That we promised not to bring one again.

I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. BY ROBERT FROST
