My Beloved Dog: Jango. - Poem by Mahfooz Ali

He seems to be only a dog.
But he is my other eye
that can see above the clouds;
my other ear that hears above the winds.
He has told a thousand times
that I am his reason for being.

When I am wrong,
he is delighted to forgive.
When I am angry,
he clowns to make me smile.
When I am a fool, he ignores it.
When I succeed, he brags.


He has taught me the meaning of loyalty.
With him, I know a private peace.
His head on my knee can heal my human hurts.
His presence by my side
is protection against my fears of the dark.
He has promised to wait for me
in case I need him,
He seems to be only a dog
But he is my beloved dog.
