Just a dog....

Just a Dog

He’s just a dog, some people say.

Why cry because he’s passed away?

He has no soul, no human spark,

No gift of speech, just a growl and bark.

But when we’re sick or simply sad,

Who worries that we’re feeling bad?

It’s Just-a-dog with big brown eyes,

Who tries to help when someone cries.

And who can always make us smile,

Though sometimes it can take a while?

It’s Just-a-dog who wants to play,

He can always chase our cares away.

Now that Just-a-dog is gone,

Our world somehow just seems wrong,

I’m Just-a-person now again,

Because Just-a-dog was our best friend.

About Me

My photo
I'm a lucky lady. I have a wonderful husband of 27 years, a fantastic 25 year old son (I'm so proud of him!) a loving and supportive family, the best friends in the world, a job that I love, and... Parkinson's Disease. I was diagnosed in September 2006. That was a jolt, but I'm learning to deal with it.
