Today is our birthday.

Today is our birthday.
You would’ve been 17.
And I still miss you
Every single day.

I miss the smell of your skin,
And the feel of your fur,
And the look in your eyes.

I miss your funny little “r-row”
And the way you’d lift your head
With your whole mouth open
(When you’d do that).

I miss you in your bed,
Your two front paws
Hanging over its edge.
Waiting for me to notice you.
To come over to you.

Thank you for the 16 years
We had together.
My Panther Boy.
My Familiar.

We will be together again.
I will join you one day.
Until then, my Sweet Diego,
Happy Birthday.
