New Day New Life

Swept up in emotion

the tears began to flow

a sudden upswing in life

when it had been so low

Out of the freezing cold

into a nice warm bed

food in a bowl

nothing to dread

Waking up to a hug

a walk with a ball

running and playing

loving it all

Coming home

hearing good boy

treat waiting for me

and a new toy

Best part

is the hugs and kisses

a beautiful life

answer to all my wishes

  1. Now I want a dog. It has been years… This poem is loaded with “feel good” moments.

    • Thanks for reading. Dogs are fun and full of energy and also will eat anything and tear things up. They are a mixed bag and I have enjoyed the companionship of each one. Have a wonderful day!
