Aidan, Spring 2002 - 8 November 2017

My swollen eyes,
     raw throat,
     throbbing head, and
     broken heart
express feelings for which I have no words.

As much as I hurt,
     it is nothing compared to your
          Surprise, when the door burst open;
          Fear, as you fled from the dogs;
          Panic, when safety eluded you;

You trusted me with your life.  I failed.
