They will not go quietly

They will not go quietly,
the dogs who’ve shared our lives
In subtle way they let us know
their spirit still survives.
Old habits still make us think
we hear a barking at the door.
Or step back when we drop a tasty morsel on the floor.
our feet still go around the place the food dish used to be.
And, sometimes, coming home at night,
we miss them terribly.
And although time may bring new friends
and a new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts
belongs to them...
and always will....
Today I received a card from Madi and Mom, this poem was on the front and says it All... 
Thank you, Cecilia and thanks to all of you who let me know hoe much you care.
