Do you feel really sad this Valentine's day?

I wrote this three months ago when I nursed my Chocolate Lab, Minerva, back to life. I couldn’t do it today. Boundless breathing Brown eyes rolling shut Undulating chest Waiting for what Princess awhile Draped in purple frill Bestowed with gifts Endless love, good will I will serve... show more I wrote this three months ago when I nursed my Chocolate Lab, Minerva, back to life.

Boundless breathing
Brown eyes rolling shut
Undulating chest
Waiting for what

Princess awhile
Draped in purple frill
Bestowed with gifts
Endless love, good will

I will serve you
Cookies, grapes and see
You lap the milk
Warmed with sweet honey

I will watch you
Breathe and wait until
Your final thought
Of your greatest thrill

You have taught me
A true lesson here
As one grows old
And becomes austere

Will need loving
Tending hands at will
To ease painful nights
And warm the chill
Update: I know about the grapes ma. I thought of ancients being waved with palms and fed grapes.

Giggles, she took her last breath this morning.
Update 2: Thank you Semper. I
