Written on July 19, in response to my conflicted feelings about getting another dog so soon after losing Bear.
Know that I can never replace you.
You were one of a kind, unique,
and I will never love another as much as I love you, as long as I live.
You hold a special place in my heart, and always will.
But since I’ve lost you, I’ve felt so empty and so alone,
even though I know you’re still with me, and always will be.
So she won’t replace you, can never replace you,
because you are you, and always will be.
But maybe she can help fill a little bitof the hole that’s been been left behind.
