Every time you look at me
Brown eyes say, "I love you"
When you're lying next to me
Your snuggle says it too

That soft brown skin's inviting smell
I pull you to me tighter
I hope you know, somehow can tell
You make my days much brighter

So playfully, you steal a kiss
Like a child, I wipe my face
What have I done to feel such bliss
This gift of "amazing grace"

Each day you show me in some way
The meaning of true love
For you my friend, each night I pray
And thank The Lord above.

    

            for my dog friend, Buddy:)

Great poem Daniel. I have written lots of poems about dogs. Have just adopted a rescue dog, a Standard Schnauzer and he is gorgeous. Blessings, Vivien

Thank you, Scarlett. I can't imagine a world with dogs or pets of any kind for that matter.

Endearingly beautiful. Your sentiments go far beyond the heart DT, Your words are soulful, a blessed offering of immense gratitude and love. I love this and I adore your dog! Those ears of his :-) I am not ready yet, though I feel your words deeply and I am smiling through teary eyes because how can one not looking at his sweet face, thank you for that :-) A very special fave and a wonderful first read of your poems to return to. blessings, lynn

I agree with you all the way, I feel the same way about my dachshund Bonzo of which I've written many poems. No, I do not write for money, for the enjoyment of it and the challenges it offers. (P.S. editors tell me my humor isn't what they are looking for?) Many thanks for stopping by. Best to you in the coming year. / M

Thank you, Augustus. When a man gets my age, nothing better than an old hound dog to hang out with. Just eat and sleep:):)

Reminds me of the dog I had when I was young.

Thank you Daniel. Bella fits her name and she likes her belly rubbed and will toss herself back for people to do it. She is very cuddly and so much like your buddy. She is my life too! :)

Ah yes, the dog, the friend, the trusted confidante, ever patient waiter, greeter, and smile maker......and.....the one who can make you look forward to a walk in the rain.

Hi Daniel, I felt the love you have for your dog in each and every word. The bond between dog and " us" is so amazing. I agree, you experience true love. They show you "loyalty" in motion. Although a dog hasn't been in my immediate family since I was a kid, I've never forgot that bond. You make me want to get a dog again. But with my kids running around Not! A without a doubt seven:-) Alexis

Thank you, Alexis. Dogs are like kids in a lot of ways. They are a big responsibility because in order for them to learn, you have to take time and patience to teach them.

Ha! Vera, when a big dog tries to get in your lap or the like - maybe they try and stand on your legs and they are swaying and wobbling all over the place... : )

I love this, DAniel (but I never thought of a dog's skin as having an inviting smell). I love my dog Snickers too! They are wonderful creatures for us to cherish.

Sounds like Snickers needs a bath. Buddy gets in the shower with me every time I take a shower. I don't always use soap on him because it dries him out but he loves the water:)
