Poem: In Memory of You

I miss you
But I’m happy anyway
I feel so young
I run, I play
I’m not alone

I remember you
Your caresses, your treats
Your socks, your shoes…
How did I love you!

I stole a shoe from Death on my way
I keep it preciously
In memory of yours
I hop onto a new cloud
In the heart of my new country
Then I let go of a bark
Can you hear me?

This poem was written in French, under the title En souvenir de toi, on June 19th, 2007. It is dedicated to the dog of my then boyfriend, who had just passed away (the dog, that is).
