by John Wyer
Looking into the depth
of a little dog's eyes
Shows the profound intensity
Of love and faithful friendship there.
Wondering what they see
And how they understand
Is a question for the ages.
The wise little brown eyes
Bring comfort and joy to the beholder.
When those precious eyes close forever
The pain is almost too much to bear.
When they precede us to Rainbow Bridge,
We are left behind knowing that
We will see them again there
As they wait for us in their innocence.
