I thought ...Man and wife
Swearing eternal love for Life.
But people do change their mind.
Often leaving spouse and promises behind.
I thought ... a loyal dog.
For an approving look so willing to slog.
But they age so much faster
Often leaving behind a sorrowing master.
I thought ..so hard and long
Spouse nor dog , both were wrong.
For faithful to his very end
Is for a man ...HIS OWN END !!!
For from the moment that he is born
It is to Death that he is sworn.
Despite Life’s roller coaster ride
Death is ever faithful and by his side.
An indulgent smile allowing him his breath
Completely loyal , an all-knowing Death.
