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.

The wonderful things she gives you.
Those that it's so hard to find elsewhere.

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,
