Haiku Poem – 旅立ち

my very first dog
slips away before my eyes
soon we say goodbye

はじめての いぬの たびだち とき ちかし

My very first dog is now dying. She is 15 years old which makes her a 110 years old in human years! I am very happy that she is in no pain but she seems so sad and when she looks at me I know that I have to soon say goodbye.
