Hooray! As luck would have it, I found the poem I was looking for just now! Here it is:
I Kept Some Things
A little red coat in its usual place,
A soft blue cloth to wipe your sweet face.
A plush doggie bed on the living room floor,
Muddy little paw prints still mark the side door.
Brushes in the cabinet all in a row,
A blue one for me and a red one for you
Your harness and leash still hang on the hook,
And on the end table your Memory Book.
Medicine on the shelf in the door of the 'fridge,
No need for this now, good health at the Bridge!
Toys in the basket in the office nook,
(Those who come here cast a sideways look.)
Your dishes in the curio, all washed and clean,
I know others wonder, "What does this mean?"
I have all your things but no longer have you...
You don't need them now…but I certainly do.
