Unconditional

by Jem Croucher

 

I don’t ask for much in life
I settle for the least
A bed to sleep in, warm at night
And now and then a feast

A little exercise most days
In the garden, out the back
Some water there to quench my thirst
And perhaps. sometimes. a snack

Yet in return for these small things
I’ll be a life-long friend
Always there to welcome you
On me you can depend

For I am faithful to the last
Ever by your side
I’ll be a true companion
In whom you can confide

I’m always pleased to see you
Whenever that might be
No matter how you’re feeling
For that’s part of being me

For I am dog you understand
A canine through and through
Unequivocally there to be
A special friend for you
