Tears rolling down
gathering in pools below,
reflecting back to me the pain and sorrow shown on my face.
Within each breath of stillness, gratitude wants in,
puppy kisses licking up each drop,
renewing me with love.
There is so much that surrounds me,
but one, black and speckled with spots,
needs me most.
Within each brown eyes gaze,
reflecting back to me, joy and loyalty shown on her face.
Puppy squirming with delight, waiting to be loved,
love comes in.
