A Poem for Uwe

You never got to live to see old age
You never got to experience winter
You never got to do you weasel war dance in the snow
But you did bring much joy and happiness

You never got to live at home much
You never got to chase the cats
You never got to live in a truely quiet home
But you were always at home with me

You never got to take a long walk outside
You never got to meet all of my friends
You never got to go to the vet. with me
But you were always my best friend

You never got to take a trip far away
You never got to take a bubble bath
You never got frolic in the rain
But you were very special to me

You always were there for me
You loved to entertain me with your antics
You needed me like I needed me like I needed you
You passed away with me and not a stranger
