Bright eyed and bushy tailed with the morning she greets,
A quick leap and up she goes, upon my head she seats.
I gasp and groan and push her away, trying a breath to gain.
A low pitched whine and gentle nose beneath my hand is forced.
Her velutinous tail soon does wag, when from my bed I am divorced.
I rub my eyes and pat her head, it’s time to greet the day.
A dog and girl, with this one the bonds are strong,
With each day adventure fills and never feels too long.
A farm there is, to run and play, and woods with mystery filled.
Day by day, one at a time she makes me see them through,
From the big picture my vision still, a small one comes into view.
She slows my thoughts to each moment as it comes.
Greeting the day, comes with ease when by my side is she,
Just a pup with faith and trust in one and only; me.
