A Poem as I Grieve the Loss of My Dog, Sam

How do I understand the depth of my loss

And all it cost

My heart is heavy

Yet You keep me steady

My life has meaning, this pain has purpose.

You say, “Keep going. Don’t give up”

I lean in as You give me strength. Air to breathe.

You give me breath and life. Hope and help.

Be my breath, my life, Lord. Be my hope and help.
