I Will Be Your Friend


When everything you have is lost, all friends and family,
I will always stay with you, you can count on me.

If people judge and criticize, with a sole aim to offend,
I will cherish your very presence. I will always be your friend.

If you come upon riches or fortunes you may find,
I will ask for nothing, I will be behind.

When people that you trust, may cheat or steal from you,
I will always be loyal, that's all I want to do.

If danger comes to close with harms ambition to succeed,
I will be in front of you, I will take the lead.

If injury becomes you and your body feels the strain,
I'll be there to comfort you, I too will feel the pain.

If you have done a wrong or when your fill of hate,
I will hold no resentment. I will always wait.

And when your tired and weary and you lay yourself down to sleep,
I will watch over you, I'll stand guard at your feet.

When no one else will listen and emptiness gets to much,
I will long to hear your voice and wish for your touch.

If you get angry and start to curse my name,
I will never leave you, I will love you just the same.

And when your life draws to an end and you go to meet your god.
I will stay behind, because I am just a dog.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
