My golden retriever
Loving and loyal
Running to greet me
Like the best friend you could imagine
If only he would live forever.

My Poem
My Savior, Jesus Christ
Flawless and loving
Atoning selflessly
Like the perfect son of God
If only I can be found worthy

My eternal companion

Creative and romantic

Steady and helpful to those around

Like the rock his name stands for

If only we stay the course, eternity's ours

The book I’m reading
Mysterious and haunting
Carries me forever into a world
Like something magical and ghostly
If only I could travel into the past.
