The Day That Buster Came To Stay

(The Beginning) Many, many years ago – when I was only ten, Times were so much happier - life was simpler then, No problems met with me each day My role in life was to run and play. And destiny was just a word I never used and seldom heard. My youthful days were never spent In worry over food or rent. But fate will always have its say In all things meant to come our way. And something lacking in my life Was often causing major strife. Loneliness would follow me Though kids galore were there to be Playmates during times of need When something caused my soul to bleed Then fate employed parental love And called on heaven up above To let something play the part And still the aching in my heart Well, heaven knew how kids are made And knew what caused my joy to fade. So, early on one winter morn A little spotted pup was born. He’s grown into a faithful friend And many joyful hours we spend Just knowing that the love we share Whenever needed will be there. Dogs are of a special breed And always fill some special need. I'll cherish always that special day - The day that Buster came to stay John Posey 12/04/12
