I felt something but pushed it aside
Then the screaming “Rhed! Rhed! Your dog! She’s gone”
And I’m thinking okay let me go to the backyard to check, maybe she’s just running around in the back.
All I can hear is my dad saying “amigo saw her lying on the street”
As I turn the corner it hit me like a ton of bricks.
The air pushed out of my lungs as a gasped for air
I can’t believe what I’m seeing
My whole body is ringing and shaking as I watch her body lying there breathless.
As I scan her body for life, I see her eyes cloud with the message I’m no longer here but in heaven and her nose and ears still bleeds as the careless motherfucker who ran her over left her.
The question still remains, where is her collar.
I’m guessing that the asshole who hit her probably took it but I’m still not certain. I’m waiting for my niece to come home so I can ask her where it is.
Everywhere I look I can’t help but wish this is just a dream..
Am I a bad person? What in my lifetime have I done to receive such karma.
My baby, is no more.
Rest in paradise my baby. I hope that you find peace and happiness in your journey. Mommy will have to stay but we will see each other again. I love you and I miss you so much.
