Faithful Dog

That faithful dog is waiting at your door,
Bursting with unconditional Love.
He (or she)is pining
For your arrival.
Whining and crying,
All ashake.

At last you are here!
Forward he leaps,
Almost losing balance with the shake
Of his tail.
Ready to lick you
Into oblivion.

So you ruffle his ears
And pat him on the head.
"Good Boy! "

Meanwhile The Cat sits
In haughty isolation
Watching coolly
Indifferent to all.

But you still go to her
As she rolls over
And bears her furry tummy
For you to scratch
And her to purr.

I love these pets
Or rather
Family Members.
While they are with us,
There is nothing better.

Beauty is priceless, precious, as your thoughts and your words, Beauty is inside you, don't hide its voice, You are worth more than gold
u are more than beautiful..U are MAGNIFICENT and immaculate
'Now you're my angel divine..'said an old song by Ringo Starr. The tone of this poem is ironic however reflects idealization with its unfailing intelligent nostalgia.
simple.. and beautiful this poem is.... as the writer may be also... hmmmm.... i like.... especially these last lines: first these words must come from me not you, I'm Beautiful Simply Beautiful! !
