One man and his dog,
Their love without words
Doubtless barely noted.
Age in their faces just as it appears,
Unspoken mutual trust
Grown deeper with the years.
No need for banter, for justification,
Safe in the sanctuary of a shared situation
Quietly at ease as they wonder the street,
Neither one worrying whom they might meet:
Each one contented to keep their stride
Knowing the other is right by his side.
There’s much to be learned by watching them there,
Two souls at peace in each other’s care.
