    Trey He lay, his head on my lap, his pained blue eyes begged, I stay. I stroked his fur, calmly spoke while he closed his tired eyes and slipped away The moan came from deep within First I didn't recognize the soulful sound came from me. Then sobs wrenched my chest and tears poured from my eyes. ~~Judi Van Gorder Prompt: Write an Endecha
