He caught my eye in that crowded place
So sad, and so alone
I invited him for a walk
Curious … intelligent
Quiet … and very aware
Soulful brown eyes … with a hint of blue in one
He made me laugh.
I knew then that I would invite him to my home.
At evenings end he approached my bed with hesitation.
I opened my arms and held him close.
I will care for you and love you for as long as you live
My precious dog.
