Curly the Dog

He was instrumental in my younger years Always right there by my side He never judged me Never made me feel wrong inside To say he was my best friend Would be a silly thing to say At one point he was my everything I think about him to this day His name was Curly Part Schnauzer and who knows what He had a happy little smile He was so much more than just a mutt We’d spend hours hunting and fishing We’d sit together in the barn There was no doubt about it I was a kid on Curly’s farm When no one was around I’d ask him questions that caused me pain He look me in the eyes His answers were always the same He reminded me to live in the moment Don't chase your tail in trouble times Be of service to your fellow man You'll have peace within your mind Curly’s no longer here But I think of him time to time It’s funny, he never said a word But forever, he will be running by my side
