Sammy

Sammy

My dog,
My friend,
My companion,
You are a female,
but we call you a boy’s name;
This is one of many things you
Could never--Nay; Need to understand.
The love you gave me was something you knew
As truly unconditional and rewarding.
Please sleep peacefully
Wherever you are.
My companion.
My friend.
My dog.

Sammy

She made an impact in my life and in my writing. She is always in my memories.

This obviously isn't the only poem I've written about Sammy. This was a poem I started on a few years ago and recently revised and finished it. In addition to explaining my loss and grief over missing her, I also wanted to capture the simplicities and the personalities of a dog and how that makes them just beautiful creatures. Enjoy!
