Poem: The Great Golden One

Innocence lost
Soul hardened
The Great Golden One
With whom I came of age
Is ripped away
Gone away
We will meet again someday
In life beyond the mortal plane
And when we do
My heart will sing
My heart will sing

Author’s Note: This poem was written in memoriam of our family golden retriever, Murphy.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching TV and movies, going on long walks, swimming, and practicing Chen style Tai Chi. I love to write poetry and blog regularly about topics such as mental health, sci-fi/fantasy series, faith, sexuality, and politics.
