pets

Better with Dogs

Loyalty, effort, love, commitment, protection, company, selflessness

They are everything I look for in a friend

Right by my side when no one else is

Barking when they sense danger

Cuddling and loving every chance they get

Following my every step with excitement for the journey with me, not the destination

Innocent interest in any form of movement—butterfly, snake, bug, bird, bee

Napping much of the day but exerting everything they have when necessary

The ones who look me in the eye with admiration and no judgement at all

The ones I am around by choice when my day is rough

 

Oh puppies, the light of this world

Teach us your ways

And change this world to be more like you

Because I love you so

And I’m struggling to love the world

Love the blue skies, but believe in the overcast…

The black clouds
Overtake the blue skies
The land becomes dark
But how can I despise?

For the realization of an instant
Began the agonizing thought
That nothing is the same forever
Why does this make me distraught?

I put my love and trust into forever
And now that is gone in a blink
The mourning lasts for a couple days
I can only hope the pain will shrink

When my view of everything
Was only days to come
I felt as though I had no other moves
And my once uplifting spirit was so very glum

But when the tears vanished
And my blurry vision was no more
I could see the future with determined eyes
It was like nothing I’ve felt before

For now I walk with a smile on my face
Not because loved ones can ever be replaced
But rather because I know my life has a plan
And the lesson being taught has only just begun

With that being said
The knowledge of the pain
Will be forever present in my brain
But the uttermost hurt, with time, will shed

Time with my precious kitty
Meant the world to me
And although she is gone
Her spirit lives on

My head is held high
And I do things to make myself happy
I can’t dwell on the past
Because what then is my future?

How can the dark clouds make me angry?
I have much enjoyed the blue skies
But everything must come to an end
I will muster my strength by knowing there are worse cries

You must experience the pain in order measure the pleasure
Love the clear skies, but believe in the overcast…

P.S. We got a pregnant kitty and she had five healthy kittens on Tuesday night. 🙂
