A Cause Four Paws

Ode To A Dog

You’ve been part of my life for many years

You’ve heard my laughter, soothed my tears

The friend that I have found in you

Is one who is steadfast, loyal and true

I have had lots of friends come and go

And many others I have sought to know

And although I have found a quality or two

None of them has been as complete as you

One or two have thought me spoiled

It never matter how hard I toiled

Or how many times I pulled them through

Or how many times my words were true

It made no difference what I spent

On friends of mine who came and went

Not one of them, no matter who

Has ever loved me the way you do

Your brown eyes bathe me with their glow

Your silly antics cheer when I’m feeling low

Your blind acceptance of my flaws

All this I get from just four paws!
