they will always love you,
a treat in the pocket, a leash,
the sound of an opening door, the clink of
a spoon scraping a metal dish.
they will walk at your side,
wag their tails and snore gently
by your bed, there are no feuds,
no hurt feelings, a scolding soon
they will walk more slowly by your side
and stay near when you sit at a chair
to watch birds fly overhead.
they don't care,
all they want is to be with
