A tribute to my best friend "Sammy"
One more attempt at poetry...
Sammy, what can I say, he was the most loyal friend I ever knew.
He never failed to be there when I was down and blue.
He always seemed to know what was on my mind.
You see, Sammy was a very special friend; he was a one of a kind.
Sammy was always there for me, despite the time, be it night or day.
If I needed him he was always on his way.
He had a way of making everything better and bright.
He could always make something that was wrong and somehow make it alright.
There were many days when my words to him were few and short.
When I was gone away, he would be there to protect my fort.
He adored my kids, and they loved him too.
They always counted on him, he always seemed to know what to do.
I remember one time, when I was threatened with physical harm.
Sammy stepped in, ready to protect me, with a vicious but cool charm.
He was one that truly loved my wife, with all his heart, soul and mind.
I was okay with that, for a friend like that is very hard to find.
The day he left us, he was sick and very week.
I held him tightly and putting my head next to his cheek.
You see Sammy was loyal to me right to the very end.
That is why he is known as man’s best friend.
