Jordans poem missing from Galway Ireland
« on: August 13, 2008, 08:23:41 AM »
This is the owners poem† of little Jordan missing now for 4 months worthy of being here

To Jordan,

Since youíve been gone,
So is your zest for life,
Tried posters by the score,
I donít know where you are.

Since youíve been gone,
So is your emotional expression,
Told animal welfare places,
I donít know where you are.

Since youíve been gone,
So are your heartfelt ways,
Asked vets, gardai and postmen,
I donít know where you are.

Since youíve been gone,
So is your trusting face,
Canvassed children at school,
I donít know where you are.

Since youíve been gone,
So are your grey chin and owl eyes,
Put pictures in newspapers,
I donít know where you are.

Since youíve been gone,
So is your petite black body,
Your story made page two,
I donít know where you are.

Since youíve been gone,
No more walks in the country,
Played you on the radio,
I donít know where you are.

Since youíve been gone,
You canít come in the car,
Guards saw you on CCTV,
I donít know where you are.

Since youíve been gone,
So is your share in our family life,
Been to travellers and markets,
I donít know where you are.

Since youíve been gone,
You canít cock your head at my stories,
Blasted internet and e-mail,
I donít know where you are.

Since youíve been gone,
No crazy running teddy shaking welcome home,
Stood your big stand on Shop Street,
I donít know where you are.

Since youíve been gone,
No lead taking-shaking on the prom,
Walked miles posting leaflets,
I donít know where you are.

I called you piglet, after Winnieís but black,
You gave us so much fun and laughter,
Weíll never forget,
Ducking your head in the car for a bridge,
Never tiring of chasing a hand under duvet,
Circling the cat lying, twisting, clawing in fun,
(You must have missed that fun when Sandy died),
Double jumping the couch and going right over,
Always attentive to peeling vegetables, carrots yum yum,
Running on the beach shore, chasing birds on the water,
As if you could catch them, we all have our dreams,
Catching the tennis ball, nudging back for a re-throw,
Helplessly sliding along the wooden floor.

How I loved you coming for trips in the canoe,
You didnít like that jacket, despite itís warm intention,
Most places on the lake we have had you near,
Good memories, especially the last, you jumped in yourself,
Waking you in the morning was an arduous chore,
You never did like the cold, damp or the wet,
Youíd delicately pick a good spot through the grass,
And tear back in at the speed of knots,
Against rules and misgivings you ran upstairs to say hello,
And tore back down in case you were caught,
On my week off we had sunshine, walks, fun,
Until that Saturday I stayed home painting, you were lost in town,
You often shiver and carry one leg so people gravitate with pity,
Shivery and well mannered and friendly to all,
I hope someone nice took you, with no collar on.

Walked the streets, travelled roads far and near,
Called your name, pretended you were home,
Heard many dogs barking, but barks never yours,
Lots of phone calls, always another,
Left your quilt in shed open, with lights on in case,
Sometimes hear your footsteps, those well polished nails,
I hold safe your bed and all your toys, and a rememberance envelope,
And I miss you so much.

Dreamt of you frozen in the field of Rathdown House,
You melted in my arms as I tried to give warmth.

You strayed in at 6 months old,
And gave 10 wonderful years of your time,
I hope you still have wonderful years ahead,
And I really hope that you like where you are.
