ONLY A DOG

A house too quiet

No padding of paws

Happy barking on my return

Clink of metal collar links

Against the water bowl

Old dog snores in the night

Soft brown eyes

That never judged

Pure heart

Incapable of deceit

How I mourn the loss

Of something so special

Not human

Something more

Than a human can

Ever be

Some would say

He was only a dog

I would say

If only a dog
