Dear Derry


Dear Derry

 Only 11 short years I had with you

Is it greedy of me for wanting more?

I loved you so much, but I am sure you knew

I brought you home when I had just turned four.


We spent hours playing in fields

Driving into the country side to go on adventures

We watched the world pass by via the car wind-shields

I remember when you were a pup and you ate my uncles dentures.


We were best friends,

Two peas in a pod,

But everything good eventually ends,

But everyday I thank god,

For allowing me to have my best 11 years with the best dog.
