There's an Empty Space Where You Used to Lay and a Pain In My Heart that Won't Go Away - Pet Loss Poem by Christy Ann Martine


Forever Free Poem Typed With Antique Typewriter


Hi, I’m Christy, a writer and poet. I’ve written all of the poems you see in my shop.

I know how hard it is to lose a faithful companion. I hope you will find comfort in this poem.

I will type out this poem with my 1936 Remington typewriter for that wonderful vintage look. I offer premium cardstock paper as well as beautiful handmade paper. You can choose the type of paper you’d like when you order.

Paper size is approximately 5 x 7 inches; the perfect size for framing. If you are sending this as a gift I’d be happy to include a handwritten note on your behalf. Simply include a note with your order to let me know what you'd like written.


Custom Pet Name

I can include "In Loving Memory of (your pet's name) or another short custom message beneath the poem for no extra charge. In this case I will leave my typed name off of the front and sign the back of the poem. Simpy include the line you would like me to add in the notes section when ordering.
