In Memory Of A Faithful Friend: Poetic Ode To A Dog

This is about a mans best friend. Every boy growing up in the 60's dreamed of having one . Unfortunately my family didn't have that opportunity. As a man I did. My dog lived to be 18 years old. This is a note to Saint Peter in memory of Tom's dog.

Note To Saint Peter


Published by Family Friend Poems July 24, 2023 with permission of the Author.

If you should see an old white dog
   Go limping past your door--
Just an ornery looking, red eyed mutt
   With three legs, instead of four--
Don't judge him by his mangy coat
   Or lack of dog appeal;
But look inside, and you will see
   A heart as true as steel.
To guard the steps of those he loved--
   From real or fancied ill,
To watch the house that sheltered them
   Through hours, dark and chill.
For this he lived - nor asked reward,
   Nor ever wondered why;
'Til old and sick, he hung his head
   And crept away to die.
So give him back his poor lost leg,
   He`s earned the best You've got!
If one of us can say the same--
   That's saying quite a lot.
