THE DOGS WHO HAVE SHARED OUR LIVES
The dogs who've shared our lives
In subtle ways they let us know
their spirit still survives.
Old habits make us think we hear a barking at the door.
Or step back when we drop
a tasty morsel on the floor.
Our feet still go around the place
the food dish used to be,
and, sometimes coming home at night,
we miss them terribly.
And although time may bring new friends
and a new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts
belongs to them...
and always will.
