Best Friend

A look, a pant, a gentle nudge,

Awake, excited to start the day.

It takes no more than a subtle budge,

To coax them on to run and play.


From birth to passing their childlike heart,

Endears them to the soul of man.

Its been this way from the very start,

Proud and loving at our side they stand.


Loyal ‘til their final day,

They’ll leave us not until our end.

Ne’re a doubt at our feet they’ll stay,

A heartfelt thanks to man’s best friend.


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
