I stood on the sidewalk. I stared at the neighbor’s green lawn. You. You were not there with me. I saw you as you were not too long ago, loyal and protective, so happy. My heart felt sad. Someone spoke to me. I could not answer them. We had a few months, no more than that. All that time I held on to you with a strong hand. You were the one bright spot in my day. I loved it. I cannot say exactly why. I just did. I wanted more time, another week or two. I had to give you up, painfully and reluctantly. Problems kept on piling up. There was no other way. That last morning when you looked at me, I had to pretend I didn’t care.
