To Copper, Sunny and Maybelle

I'm surrounded by friends
Of the four-legged kind;
They make me laugh
With their antics
And they comfort me
When life becomes
Too hard,
They even
Sleep with me
Where their whimpers
And grunts
And soft snoring
Remind me
That I am not
Completely alone.
Yet still I feel
I am,
For they
Cannot take the place
Of humanly love
And though their eyes
Speak volumes
We cannot converse
Of life and love
And all they entail;
But for all that
I would not trade them
For anything,
Because no human
Can ever love
So purely
Or so completely
The person
I have grown to be.

Only a true animal lover could have these feelings. I too have furry friends, all 52 legs of them. (13 cats). They're the greatest. And not one of them with the same personality.

They never let us down, Rebecca,
they don't betray, they are true.
Beautiful words and picture.

Reviewed by Karen Palumbo 9/23/2010
Oh what a precious photograph! Our furry friends are the best and I know I enjoy every blessed moment with mine because they are all bundles of love and sharing is a gift...

Be always safe,
