sticks her pink tongue - out
Opens up her big, wide jaw
brightest teeth, i ever saw
Looks at me; clear shiny eyes
instinctive creatures- never lie
Gobbling Goddess-sent fare
genuinely being - so very rare
Satisfied with all that she gets
has never, ever, visited the Vet's
Content to lay at my own side
unconditional love; bonafide
Appreciates a stroke or pat
rubs up against me, like a cat
Named her after my Mother
her love for me; none other!!!!
My one and only .. lonely Son,
used to love Thelma, so. Even had
a photo of his handsome self, with
longer hair .. and one of his 2 puppies -
in front of him, on the bed - for a facebook
That was when he was not ashamed to
to be gentle, kind and real.
So, now whenever i feel alone and lost,
over the loving life . i once shared ...
I remember 2 reasons ... to still focus
on who cares
Sad, how so many. .. take for granted
what is real and will not always be
convenient or around . My heart gladdens
over unconditional love - i once was given
by my confused child. Now found by loving
creatures; wanting nothing from me - except
what i willingly give.
Thelma and Edward - offer me rhyme and
reason .. ,to live
Bless Goddess' gentlest creatures
'Man' with all of his excuses .. has much to learn.
Shame, be falsely believes .. he has 'time'
to waste .. and burn.
Grateful am I - for deeper understanding i have ..
hard won - though i did earn!
