With all the tragedies out there, I decided to write a sad poem.
GOODNIGHT MY DARLING
By Theresa Gage
Her velvet paws caressed my back,
As my dog snuggled close to my side.
I welcomed her warmth,
For it attacked the coldness of my grief,
That I had tried to hide.
My tears rolled free
Like the waves of the tide,
As I clawed the edge of our boat,
In my attempt to save him.
My boy was lost to the sea.
But I will see him in my dreams,
For our souls are surely tied,
And remember all the good times we had.
Goodnight, my darling boy.
