For Winifred...


When it’s one of those days,


where little goes right


and I drag myself


through the door,


I’m met with sloppy wet licks


and a blast of bad breath…


Proof someone is 


glad I exist.


For reasons unknown


she’s addicted to me.


She yearns for my smile,


and begs for my touch.


My angel, my imp  


with a pureness of heart,


it’s clear she wants only to please.


She doesn’t care if


I’m rich, or I’m poor,


If I’m pretty or not,


She just wants to know


I am hers.

awww, this is as sweet as it gets, Michelle. If only we could learn to love as unconditionally and as completely as our pets, I think mankind would be in a position to change the world. Very nice poem and tribute to your wonderful friend.
Take care,

Great to see you back, Michelle. A truly delightful poem - and what a joy Winifred must be! Yes, the muses sometimes shoulder each other out, but still, what a treasure to have two of them.

Part angel,
part imp with
an unfettered heart,
craving only to please.

They truly do, and your Winifred sounds like a marvelous imp angel, Michelle.
