A Pause At the Door

 I turn the handle and crack open the door to enter.

I stop.  I wait.  I pause at the door.

I brace myself - waiting for what should be the inevitable but it doesn't come.

I breathe out and remember.

He is gone.

The silence lurks.

And I go in.

    Oh, Dawn, is this about AJ? So, so sad. :(


  2. The fact that you 'got it' brought the tears out. I've been carrying these words around in my head (heart) for a while but was finally able to write them down. Yeah, I sure miss that dumb dog...

    I knew right away, and got tears in my eyes too. It is like losing a member of your family.
