Anyone who has suddenly lost a companion animal, or a wild animal you’ve gotten to know, can understand the pain. This poem’s heartbreaking title alone sums it up.

By George Cassidy Payne

There are some friends
who just go.
But we are not allowed
to talk about it.
I called for you.
I put posters up for you.
I checked Craigslist for
you. I still call for you.
And when I pull into
my driveway, I look
for you. Under the camper
or in a tree. I look for you.
Leaving my world without
saying goodbye.
