Your Dog True To You - Poem by Francis Duggan

The woman he loves she will not be his wife
She left him for another he feels hard done by life
He sits on his back door step drinking a beer
And the best friend he has by him is sitting near.

His black border collie Sooty is his truest mate
Each evening after work he greets him at the front gate
With a welcoming bark and a wag of his tail
Your dog true to you when all other loves fail.

He pines for lost love a cross for him to bear
Suppose such is life though life is not always fair
But for every loss in life there must be a gain
For his dog is with him to help him through his mental pain.

His dog demands little of him and little he need
Each day a few kind words a few pats and a feed
For his undying love his needs seem so small
For his loyalty of you he asks little at all.

As he sits on his doorstep a beer he does drink
The wild birds are singing but of lost love he think
But his best mate from him just ten metres away
Out of the sunshine in the shade of the fruit tree he lay.
