“Sam” The Old Man of Wisdom…

I discovered “Sam” while visiting Lincoln County Animal Shelter not long ago. He looked into my soul. I could feel Sam’s soul too…

Sam is my friend now. His old soul shows more love and wisdom than most humans I know…

When “Sam” speaks, everybody listens. Sam is my man, the main man of wisdom…

Sam is a listener. He looks into my soul. He hears my sadness. He has more wisdom than any human I know.

Sam loves me, I know. He feels my heart beating fast or slow. We walk slowly together, growing older together in spirit and love…

Sam comforts me with a smile and a tail wag. He puts his head on my lap, looking at me with kindness and love…

Sam hugs me too. He kisses my face to show his endless and unconditional love…

Without Sam, loneliness would overcome the sadness in my heart and soul. With Sam, my soul heals. And, my heart smiles again…

When Sam and I are out and about at the beach or in the forest above, we keep each other safe and warm. He walks with a limp and a little slower these days…

Sam lives for every moment with me. He helps me live in the moment too. My soul feels whole with Sam, my main man of wisdom and love…

I feel free of everyday stresses with my pal Sam. We live together in the moment, Sam and me…

Sam and I live in the moment together. With every breath and scent from mother nature’s gifts, we walk together slowly taking it all in as one…

Sam knows my soul. I feel Sam’s soul too… He has a soul just like me…

When Sam walks on the beach with me, he stops, sits, and watches the sea birds fly. He used to chase and fly with his sea bird friends when his legs were strong…

Sam’s legs are sore now, his knees buckle in the sand. My knees feel the same. Sam helps me grow old happily just like him…

With another good walk at the beach or in the rain forest above, Sam and me head home. It’s time for a nap now, Sam and me together, as pals forever as one…

We are old pals now, Sam and me. We never leave each other alone. We comfort each other in good times and in bad times…

For tomorrow, Sam knows we will walk together again, slowly. We live in the moment, love in the moment, feel our souls together in the moment.

We are old pals now, Sam and me… We will never leave each other alone…
