JUST A DOG (Richard Dehmel)
From time to time people tell me "Lighten up, it's just a dog," or well That's
a lot of money for just a dog."
They see the travel distance, the time spent and spending of the money
for just a dog, and they don't undertand. Hours after hour passes,
and m only company is just a dog. Some of my proudest moments were with only a dog
and also some of my saddest moments came only with a dog.
However in those dark days it was the gentle touch of only a dog that made me strong
and moivated to keep going. Only a dog brings me pure friendship, turst, and perfect happiness.
Only a dog brings compassion and patience which makes me a better person.
Only with a dog will I get up early, take long walks, and look forward to the future.
For people like me, it is not "JUST A DOG"
My dog is an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams for the future
many happy memory from the past, and the pure joy for the present :)
I can agree with all and each word of it!! :)
