Goodnight My Darling

With all the tragedies out there, I decided to write a sad poem.


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.IMG_0445
