Underneath your cherry tree

Print this story

I’m 12 years old and this is a poem I wrote for my dog which passed away.

You’re the one that we could trust 

the place that we could go

in winter you were the summer sun

in summer you were the snow.


You’ll never be forgotten we’ll think of you every day,
though you have gone forever,
in our hearts you’ll stay.


You are what I most dearly miss

If I could see you know I would tell you this:
I hope you found peace underneath your cherry tree.

Wow. So beautiful and so sad. A really good poem. I'm so sorry your dog passed away.

This is really beautiful. You are amazing and your dog must be watching you at the moment. He/She would be really glad to have an amazing owner like you!

This is beutifully written and perfect. I am 11 and I don't think I could write something as good as that. Thank you for sharing it.

Ich liebe es!!!!! Es ist wunderschön und so herzzerreissend, aber zugleich auch beruhigend. Ich würde es 100 Mal und mehr kaufen! Und ich finde es sehr gut geschrieben! Für 12 bist du wirklich sehr gut! Ich glaube, man kann noch Großes von dir erwarten!

I love it! My aunt's dog passed away too, and this relates to that beautifully.

Wow, I know exactly what you mean. 2 years ago our dog, Gus, passed away, and he's still in our hearts. What a moving poem!
