Day six

I once had a dog

before him

I had never taken care of anything but myself

Then we picked him up

His name had eight letters

I still use them today to protect my secrets

My dog

That I once had

A long time ago

Rocked the world with each lift of his giant paws

and his absence sent waves through my life

What a companion he was

I once had a best friend

That sat with me when I was sad

and listened to my fears

that friend was always there to give me hugs

To fill my life with love

To soften all the blows

To wipe away tears....

I remember when I had a dog.
