I got totally torn up over this. In case you couldn't tell, its a goat, not a person. She was only 3 months old I think. To you Blackfire, always my baby.

Lost Soul

Only months old

She is taken from this earth

Her life only a learning process

Teaching things she'll never use.

Her limp form lies cold

On the hard ground.

She never had a real chance at life

I weep when I get the call.

Her beautiful black face

And long slender ears appear

Vividly in my mind.

So angry with myself that I wasn't there.

I couldn't hold her in my arms

When her soul,

Her life slipped away quietly into the night.
