More Than Family

DSCN0658

Listen close

And you will “hear”

Constant reassurance

A sympathetic ear

 

A lick of the face

In agreement I suppose

The surprising delight

In an ice cold nose

 

The wag of a tail

The warm spot in your bed

The unbridled acceptance

From that tail to the head

 

Toenails that tap

As paws scamper on the floor

They are not here to obey

They are here to adore

Jen Ward, continued

 

They are closer than family

We chose them from the start

They are more than a friend

They are an extension of our heart.
