Poem from a Senior Dog




I remember the first time I saw you,


I was coming of the plane


Hoping you would love me,


praying you would care


I wasn't young, had no teeth


survived 7 years in a puppymill,


it's a wonder we meet.




I was nerveus, didn't know what to expect


I hoped you would accept me


I was holding my breath.


You took one look and opened your arms,


I accepted without shame.


Then you grew to love me,


And I admit the same.




I have shared with you your laughter,


You have wet my fur with wine.


We've come to know each other


throughout these years of fun


Just one more cuddle this morning


before you start your working day.


Know I will think about you


Throughout your busy day.




I'll faithfully wait here for you


till your return to me


My heart is yours forever


I promise-- but


Please, never leave me




signed


Grigri
