A Large Black Dog

Depression


 

A large black dog stole my friend away
Without a chance for us to say goodbye
It led him into the darkness
Until he lost his way and his view
Now, he resides in our hearts…

A large black dog stole my friend away
So we came together to say goodbye
On an autumnal day
In a beautiful barn
Full of beautiful people
Exactly one year ago today…

A large black dog stole my friend away
So we will think of him with love today
But that is really nothing new
For we thought about him yesterday
And all the days before that, too…

A large black dog stole my friend away
To a place far away that we cannot see
But when we close our eyes we can clearly
picture him, and hear him laugh
And now he runs through our memories, dog free…

The black dogs of Death – a good tribute to a departed friend. Mitch

If only he could have found the strength of laughing and be happy when he was alive.
