The Stone

By Alex Knuth

There you rest all day
stay all day
and
and
make no noise all day.

No one says anything
when they're next to you
but you may hear
their sobs of sadness.

As you slowly sink down you
become more missed and
your memory
your memory
slowly starts to fade.

you are somewhere else now
a better place
where you can chase
all the squirrels you want
without having to move an inch.

We will never forget the time that you
ran away or tackled
my brother.

But.

you will have to promise to never
ever
forget about us.

While you stay there
sitting on your pillow
we will never forget the touch of your
fur.

Behind the logs
below the flowers
and next to our harts.

There you rest all day
stay all day
and
and
make no noise all day
and stay forever.
And ever.
