To the day I let you go || Story

This is a poem I have written after my dog passed away. This Fall it is two years that she is gone.

*  *  *
To the day I let you go, was the saddest of them all
I heard the sound of the breaking heart
Though I was still breathing
Though I was still alive
I guess I should have told you a simple ‘Goodbye’
But I couldn’t make any sound
The sun was high up above
And everything seemed so calm
No wind to blew any leaves
The start of The Fall was here at least
I saw the end coming far ahead
Couldn’t bare the start of the pain
I pushed it far away this time
I hoped it would disappear
I hoped you’d be fine
Now and then you’re sleeping peacefully
To the day I let you go was the saddest
