Paw-Print on My Heart

Oh, how I miss my Candy,

A dog of well-known breed,

Who always was beside me?

And sensed my every need…

He’d comfort with a nuzzle,

Sit closely by my side,

If I were feeling cheery

Or in great despair …

A scratch would do him nicely,

When his needs came to fore,

A tender kiss upon his head,

He rarely asked for more…

I miss his gentle presence,

The howl he sung with glee,

The friend who found no failure

Or faults in me could see…

Candy left a paw – print

Upon my breaking heart.

For we had bonded fully

And hoped to never part.
