POEMS: “Member of the family”(pets) by by Hope Harrington Kolb


“Member of the family”


What would I do without you,

my precious, furry friend?…

Part mischief, but all blessing,

and faithful to the end!

imagessmell rose

You look at me with eyes of love;

you never hold a grudge…

You think I’m far too wonderful

to criticize or judge.


It seems your greatest joy in life

is being close to me…

I think God knew how comforting

your warm, soft fur would be.


I know you think you’re human,

but I am glad it isn’t true…

The world would be a nicer place

if folks were more like you!


A few short years are all we have;

One day we’ll have to part…

But you, my pet, will always have

a place within my heart!
