My Shadow is gone

You've been my golden best friend
Now with post-demise at hand
Can't go to you for consolation
'Cause your off limits during this transition

The grief overwhelms me
It burns my stomach
And I can't stop runnin' into things

You've been like a soul mate
I remember the first time we met
It was then I knew God's face was handsome
With you I suffered an expansion

This loss is numbing me
It pierces my chest
And I can't stop dropping everything

If I had a bill for all the philosophies I've shared
If I had a dime for all the possibilities I presented
If I had a penny for every hand thrown up in the air
My wealth would render this no less severe

Thought we'd be healing together
Thought we'd be growing together
Thought we'd have more adventures together
But sadly I was wrong

Thought we'd be exploring together
Thought we'd be running together
Thought we'd be inspired together
But sadly I was wrong

I swore I would be your keeper for life as your guardian
I would be your warrior of care your first warden
I would be your angel on call I'll be on demand
The greatest honor of all, as your guardian

Dear Shadow Dog, I've lit the candle, your free from the pain,
go, go now and find your best friend the Devil Dog,
she's been waiting a long time for your to join her and I'm sure
she has missed you as we all will miss you now.

Just please,
don't be making her open the screen door for you....
