When I met him on the way he was lost and handsome,
Just in time when I was lonely and when we both thought,
Only that company that a dog gives man as a best friend,
When I touched him, he was as smooth and sweet as a lamb,
At that time he smelt like hell, when I washed him he looked,
Like a pillow.
As Time went by he helped me fight my enemies as a promise,
No matter what, he never slept, just to see me safe always like a sun,
Any time I felt like a lonely person, he was my joy, peace, and hope,
Always as sharp as a pin and he was my lion in my small world,
Every morning linked my cheeks like a baby to make me know,
He cares for sure.
When time came for him and me to separate it was tough like hell,
He looked as hard as a rock to accept because he was my prince,
Food is sweet but in trouble looks like mad that was our feeling,
No one feeds you except one close when I left hunger came by,
He knew, smelt, and felt me.
Though time went on my wishes never stopped to enter haven,
I always saw him in my dreams close like clothes and a body,
Now that he is back in my arms my world has light once more,
Since that time I have realized that you can’t loose your heart,
Only what the heart wants then if it’s lost and leaves don’t fight,
It always comes back because it’s yours…
Man’s best friend is a dog and with out its security we have no peace, life and happiness.
