People & Pets



We cannot help but wonder

in watching people and

their pets


how it is that

we have so much in common

are they copying us

or we them


they live in our houses

eat the same food

at times use the same toilet

watch TV by our side


pets ask for nothing in return

but pats on the head

an occasional treat


the oddest thing is

that after awhile

they start to look like us

or us them


they follow us

wanting to be near us

they become our shadows

always ready for a ride


we are their providers

but ultimately

it is they who provide


a touch of love that's lacking

in our sterile hard knocks world.

A well penned poem, a reminder to the ones who neglect these adorable ones who love so unconditionally
Thought provoking one..

Well said. My two dogs are everything to me. Their love is unconditional and ever present. A good poem

"We are their providers

Clearly written from experience
