The Poetry of Brian Langley - "The City Poet"
A short poem relating to the passing of man's best friend
I buried Betsy yesterday
My cheeks were wet with tears.
We'd been together quite a while,
For almost fifteen years
Her last few years, she'd been quite ill
It started on her skin.
As time went by, the cancer spread
Attacking from within
Some vital parts, they'd ceased to work
But still she struggled on
To do her share of daily chores.
Then all at once she's gone
