My Collie

was named Polly

She was last seen

at age thirteen


She was cursed

with the mystery

of life and never ending hope


I will try to cope

with this loss of her


This lock of fur

and her ashes here

Remind me, she’ll always be near


Her memories are locked

up in this box


Polly, rest in peace

in the heavens above


I’ll always love you

and remember your day

and I’ll be blue


You were always so loyal and true

God bless your heart

You were always good from the start

I’ll be seeing you!
