My dog named Rufus

I Only Wanted You

They say memories are golden, I don't know if that's true
I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.
A million times I've needed you, a million times I've cried.
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still.
Your passing leaves an emptiness no one will ever fill.

This is my poem for Rufus, she was a girl with a funny name. She was one of the most beautiful people I ever knew and my heart breaks because I miss her so much. I wish I could have gone with her.

I Have Left Rufus in God's Hands
by: Kamini Raj

Rufus came into my life when he was a month-old puppy. His mother was an English Cocker Spaniel and father a Waimaraner.

He was born with 6 siblings, but he was the only survivor till today.

I always wanted a dog and had him. Loved him so much, till this very moment.

But I have been deprived of Rufus as I have gotten into a divorce and was warned that Rufus will never follow me. My heart aches every day whenever I think of how I have been deprived of my beloved Rufus.

I will never even know if he goes off one day. That is why I left him in the hands of God the day I walked out of my marriage.

Amma will always love you, Rufus (Amma means Mother in Tamil).

Your Poem
by: tom

Your poem echos my feelings. I lost my little buddy Ned a little over 2 weeks ago and my heart is still broken. Just know that our little friends are never far from us. Listen for her bark in the wind and you will see her in your dreams. A friend told me this and I hope it helps you a little. I know it's hard. Good Luck.
