Good Boy!

A white and a furry creature

Running along the side of the road

Making sure that it could cure

The sorrow on the face of the old.

As the years start to go by

The energy starts to dissipate

The creature begins to lie

On the ground where it once ate.

Nine years have already passed

His energy and beauty starting to lack

Us not knowing how long he will last

While we continue to pet his back.

May he be young or old, he always brings us joy

And no matter how old, he will always be a good boy.

The author's comments:

My dog is now into its old phase of life and now is losing his energy. I really love him and hope him for the best.

You have creatively penned inner emotions, fear and care for your furry companion who loved you unconditionally. It is a hidden fear of losing some loved one, and you have brought those emotions out exceptionally well. Great Poem!!! Looking forward to more from you.
