My Love Kong

My beautiful boy
On the morning of my son Steve's 21st birthday, my dog Kong of eleven years died of something called the bloat. It is very common in German Shepherds and it happens so quickly, with no warning at all.
He was everything to me. I swear he was so human he could understand everything I said, even if it was in paragraphs.
I am having a hard time dealing with his death and I don't know what to do. I know he is with God at the rainbow bridge and it is supposed to make me feel better but I am so depressed and sad and blaming myself. I just want him back, and that is not going to happen. I will have to wait to see his beautiful eyes because I know he is waiting for me and loves me so much.
I am sorry I did not save you, my boy, but you are in a better place now. I love you with all my heart. I will never ever forget you. If there is any way you could give me a little sign, I will take anything, my love. I miss you so damn much, my heart is breaking every day.
You rest in peace now, my love. I will try and go on without you as best I can. I love you my beautiful boy.
My heart is breaking without you here,
Going on without you is my biggest fear.
The time we had was not enough,
Living without you is going to be rough.
I miss you more and more each day,
I am equally sad in every way.
In my mind I see you my boy,
Your life brought me so much joy.
I am lost without you in my life,
You never got to have your kids with your wife.
So I have nothing left of you except for memories,
And the gentle breeze from your special trees.
I will love you always and may you never forget,
That having you in my life I will never regret.
