My 4 Legged Friend
You wake me up with your cold nose pressed against me
and a gentle wash till I get out of bed,
with your tail wagging ready for endless play.
You are my comfort and my companion
my four legged friend.
Your playful times excite me
when we play ball and go catch,
the fun we have together
shared only by you and I.
Your mischievous behavour
and sad puppy dog eyes,
the rewards that you give me
by endless cuddles and fuss.
With doggy walks which gives us much pleasure
as I see you sniff and explore everywhere.
That damn puddle I keep trying to avoid
where you seem to ignore as you wallow in the muddy waters.
With tests of human patience
soon gone as I see you look at me
with a look saying this is fun.
You stand next to me and you protect me
from strangers around unknown,
my guard dog evolves as you stay close by me.
You never give up on me with the things that I say
In my friendship and my teachings.
I confide in you and I trust you
and I know just how much you understand.
You give me such fond sweet memories
in pictures of what's been and what will be.
A sweet face and a silent voice,
my forever four legged friend.
