In Memory of Sadie

I rode my bike to Johnson Avenue
And stopped to visit your grave.
The ficus tree is getting bigger every year
Nourished by your essence.

You were such a good listener.
I could tell you my deepest secrets,
Bare my inner soul, reveal my fears
And no one else would ever know.

I need you to comfort me once more
And snuggle up to my ear.
Look into my eyes and turn the pain
Into just another chew toy.

You were an eighteen pound female
Terrier with an attitude and could always
Make me laugh when I was down.
Thanks for the smiles once again my old friend.

Dear John,
Until the last stanza I didn't know you were talking about a terrier. The words 'Look into my eyes and turn the pain into just another chew toy' did give me pause (or should that be paws?) for thought. A clever write. Thanks for sharing.
Looking forward to more...

This was nice. Pets are our best friends. They can even give us comfort when they're dead.
