All the Wonders

Sitting with an Aging Pet

For Spec


You still chase bunnies in your sleep

Tracking, barking, leaping

Master of the back yard


You still jump in the air when it's time to eat

Letting me know that you know

When supper time is here


But then I see you dodge a shadow

Unable to see clearly with cloudy eyes

And I have to touch you when I enter the room

To let you know I am here


I know that someday

Your windmill-tail will stop spinning

Your courageous, loyal heart will cease to beat


I sit with you in love and sadness and gratitude

I hope that I have blessed you with

Just a fraction of the blessing you have bestowed upon me

And I am grateful for your sweetness, your faithfulness


You still chase bunnies in your sleep
