we do not deserve

we do not deserve their love

 

I hadn’t noticed my dog was getting old

it was shocking when I saw her struggling to jump on the sofa,

and her painful awakening growling to herself.

She sat in the sun on the terrace, but she worried

about me sitting inside.

Our walk was short she and I, tired quickly and I thought

I have to buy more firewood.

She had seen her life’s duty to look after me, she tried

barking when someone came near the houses.

We human do not deserve dog their fidelity is endless

and they overlook our fault.

Their love for us holds no reservation. It was a sad day

when she left me.

Touching and true. We have a prize that one species above all
provides with no reservation- devoted companionship. My sisters
and a niece have shared that reward over many years of dog
ownership and it is a cruel reaiity that the canine life-span is so
short and their departure from our lives so frequent as a result.
Life-enhancers, life-givers and life-preservers, dogs merit the best
we can give in return.
