Poem – i thought

I thought I heard her flap her ears

That day when I awoke

I thought I heard her by my side

That day when I first spoke

I thought I felt her lick my face

‘Get up, the day’s begun’

I thought I saw her wag her tail

But there was only one

I thought I felt her paw my arm

Hanging out the side

I thought I heard her almost purr

There by my bedside

I thought she rolled over on her back

Was it my imagination?

I thought she smiled, that soft way she does

Must have been my re-creation

‘Hello, my friend, how are you today?

Did you have a good night sleep?’

And when I realised she wasn’t there

It almost made me weep.
