Buddy, all white and alert
So full of love for us.
But you were not always like this.
At first you were terrified;
too scared to trust anyone
It took so long for you
to warm up to me.
I can only imagine
what all you went through
with your prevous owners.
I feel blessed that you made
your way into my life.
Buddy, you will always
be safe in my presence.
I will protect you from
any harm coming your way.
And I will return all of the
love that you send my way.
