Your fur so shiny and so soft,
Golden like the setting sun,
Your eyes so stunning and so deep,
Brown and sweet like honey drops.
When my world was dark and cold,
And all I wanted was to cry and hide,
You stood by my side with loyalty,
And offered me a steady hold.
You were with me all the time,
We became the closest of friends,
A bond was formed so very strong,
You precious thing deserve this rhyme.
As when no one batted an eye,
It was you who took away my pain,
I shared with your the sun and rain,
And only you could hear my cries.
Once a threat came in my way,
I fell and someone tried to help,
Though you didn’t let him touch me,
You jumped in front to keep me safe.
An angel from the heavens above,
For so many wonderful days,
You were the night and light for me,
Unconditional care and love…
