My Puppy, Jack

By Milagros Razo, age 15, California


My puppy, named Jack, sadly ran away,
And I can’t believe what I’m going to say.
I really miss my puppy, Jack,
That loved to go out and run the track.

He always made me feel complete,
Just the way he felt with meat.
I loved my puppy, Jack, to death,
And once I heard the news, I lost my breath.

I cried and cried, but it did no good
Until I thought to leave him food.
He always returned home since I was 13,
But this didn’t seem like his normal routine.

I cried and was worried for three days straight
Until he arrived home super late.
I was so excited and relieved to see Jack once more
That I decided to spend my day at the shore.

The following day it felt so good
That Jack came to hike with me in the woods.
I have no words to describe my love to Jack,
But all I could say is that I love him to the moon and back.
