Old Man and His Dog

C'mere ole boy, sit down a spell,
We've come to know each other well,
It's just us two since Mother's gone
And someday too we shall move on,
Still, in her chair I often see
You curled-up cozy on her knee,
And I am grateful for the view,
Such love she had for me 'n you,
We're made for certain things to stay,
What Mother gave won't go away,
Of just us two? We'll take good care,
Sure... go and curl up in her chair.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
