    Poem: At Six

    At six I first experienced loss

    My dog had passed, leaving me alone

    I wept for her on the day I was told

    I did not realize she was that old

    My mom handed me pictures

    Of all the times I spent with her

    I refused them, hurting even more

    Although, it’s all a blur 

    I would never see her again

    So I searched for a new pet to call a friend


    There was a dog at the shelter

    And when I saw her, I wanted nothing more than to help her

    Her name was Chloe, her fur gold

    Reminded me of the one that was my old

    I fell in love with that dog, with all of my heart

    But sadly, we were torn apart

    Another family had taken her

    Let her stay at her house

    I was devastated, and my tears fell quiet as a mouse


    But on the morning of my birthday

    I went on a drive

    I didn’t know where I was going, but I enjoyed the ride

    But when we arrived, 

    I saw what was there

    Another golden retriever was standing there

    She was mine

    I took her home

    I named her Chloe

    Now I was not alone.
