(Wo) MAN’S BEST FRIEND
I walk the dog beside the ocean waves,
we talk about the big things, he and I,
he listens to my thoughts and to my raves,
he doesn’t disagree or argue why.
I know he values everything I’ve said,
although he sometimes gazes carefully,
he never seems to think I’m off my head,
in any case he smiles and nods at me.
We walk and talk without a hint of strings,
the dog and I, beside the water’s flow,
I’ve found I can discuss the hardest things,
he’s happy just to listen, even though…
And gets to walk the beach another day.
