Sit By My Side

Sit by my side and lick my toes, Or stick your nose in my lap. There never could be time for woe Not even time to nap. Your tail wags fast and furious, And you hop about with joy. Looking up at me and smiling, Like a kid with a new toy. I love you like you’re family, and look forward to each day. A love so unconditional, There’s always time to play. Our time together may be cut short, For life sometimes is not fair. But you will always have my heart, Devotion, Time, and Care. - Mary Susan Vaughn

A caring poem, Mary. I thought, after the first stanza, you were referring to a human -- I was mistaken, of course. Few humans are that devoted. :-)
