My Faithful Friend Poem

My Faithful Friend
by Kelly F. Barr

His ears perk up when I speak.
His kisses are wet and sloppy.
He senses when I’m sad or ill
And offers me comfort.

As soon as I take a seat
He is right beside me.
He puts his head upon my lap
For a scratch on chin or behind ears.

He’s quiet unless he senses a threat,
Then his growl and bark are menacing.
He is friendly, obedient, faithful
loyal; cuddly, soft and warm.

We play ball and take walks
Or go for rides in the car.
If you haven’t figured it out,
He is my Labrador Retriever.
