Baby Girl

“Baby Girl”

–Amy Engle


National Poetry Writing Month 2017 Poem #3


She was an angel sent from heaven,

My darling Baby Girl.

The way she listened and gave comfort

Made her the perfect pet for me.

My Dallas was the only dog that

Could make me forget

The awful pains of this cruel world.

And now she’s gone home

To her divine resting place,

Awaiting the next time we shall

Run and play together.
