WE ONLY SEE SHE’S GONE

 

PEPPER

Aug. 1994 – Nov. 2007

 

 

Our best friend, Pepper, has left us now

Her spirit lingers on

But when we look around our house

We only see she’s gone

 

We feel her spirit on her pillow

We feel her run and chase the ball

We feel her anxiously announce “cookie time”

Then hear her barking call

 

We feel her spirit hold “tiger” tight

We feel her prance when we come home

But when we look around our house

We only see she’s gone

 

We hurt to have watched her age and grow old

We hurt when we helped her from the floor

Our hearts are sad each time we come home

We hurt not to see her anymore

 

We love our Pepper and had thirteen great years

Her unconditional love only saw we did no wrong

We hold her spirit and memories close to heart

But when we look around our house we only see she’s gone.
