Day 8: An Agreement

A Beautiful Friendship

I promise to feed you
And give you a home;
To protect you
As well as I can.
I promise to care for you
When you are sick.
And hold you
If you ever get scared.
I promise to give you
A warm place to sleep,
And never make you
Wait in the rain.
I promise to let you
Play in the sunlight,
And sometimes
Take you to the beach.

In return,all I ask
Is that once in a while
You sit and be with me
If I'm lonely or sad
Warn me of strangers
Take me for walks
Stay off the couches
Do your business outside.
Most of all love me
Just love me a lot
I'll be your human
You'll be my dog
....This could be the beginning
    Of a beautiful friendship.
