Whenever I am lonely I can count on one friend,
For he will always be there with two ears to lend.
He sticks by my side, through thick and thin.
When my head hangs low, he lifts my chin.
He does not speak yet he says so much.
He has such a soft, and gentle touch.
He is a shoulder to cry on when I need one near.
He is there to catch my every tear.
When I need a hand he is always there.
I hope he knows how much I care.
My dog is the one that is there for me,
For a human could and would never be.
