Passing Days with my dog Sam

The end of the day splays on my window sill,
Complete with soft rays from the setting sun.
To cause long shadows from an old oak tree,
To be painted on my shirt home spun

Night creeps in at its own pace.
The windows open, feeling a cool breeze.
My dog Sam and I rest in our cabin's space.
Sam with a bone, me with a beer, crackers and cheese.

Today has been calm, us just setting here,
Watching the quiet movement of another day.
Through our window saw a passing deer.
Sam barked once or twice, deer had nothing to say

Night falls dark and stars brightly shine.
Some covered by clouds from a North prevailing wind.
A chilling fog could cover the coastline,
And keep all the fishing boats locked in.

I may fall asleep sitting right here.
With Sam my companion and friend.
Hope when we wake in the morning the skies clear.
So Sam and I can do it all over again

A Dog's Passing

At times I feel so confused and wonder what to do. Standing at the door, in or out, out or in, is the sky so blue?
I walk the same old path, it was the highlight of my day but I didn’t make it, he had to carry me half the way. 
I woke up this morning feeling just so wrong but she made me feel better, her voice is like a song.   
Feeling all so tired but excited anyway when I heard him step thought the door, on this very day.
I noticed a tear in his eye and stood up just say” I love you so much, I wish we could go out and play”  
He helped me to lay back down and said it would be o.k.  
They both stay there, stroking my golden hair 
Even once or twice, said a little prayer.
As I close my eyes, I know I will be missed. 
Wishing I could give them both, one more little kiss.
