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.

  • Comment from author about the poem: This poem is rather rough around the edges so to speak, but I wrote the night my dog passed so sorry about that. I write poems to try to get down in words how I feel, poetry has helped me through some tough times and has helped me understand myself in better and clearer light than I thought possible. I would like to get better at poetry as I know I am not the best so any advice is gladly welcome :)

            My only advise, which you asked for, would be to free yourself from the restraint of rhyming. You might find it opens up your writing to much greater expression. Nice poem, P.S!

              This was really my first real attempt at rhyming, my other poems don't usually rhyme, thank you so much for the advice 🙂
