I had a birthday

I had a birthday

and my wife picked out a dog

it was a cute puppy

but not what I would have chosen

and the first thing he did

as she handed him over

was lick my face

and then it was all over

it was instant love

she had intuitively picked the right doggie

for me to love forever.

she couldn’t have made

a more perfect match

custom made

for the person

I really am,




and, I hope and pray

he awaits me

along with

my big kitty

to greet me

as I walk out

of this body

I wear

like a garment.
