Faithful Companions

dog_friends5

An old man whistles

as he shuffles down the sidewalk

Each step an effort

The effects of time

his constant companion

A well-lived life

his source of inspiration

 

His old dog

limps along beside him

Each step an effort

Still he follows

A loyal companion

His well-lived life

with his gentle Master

 

They make quite a pair

A familiar site

As they make their way

from here to there

Each of us smiling

wondering where they go

as they pass by

while the old man

whistles

    • Thank you. This is one of my favorites. I used to see a very old man walking a very old dog every day and then one day, they were gone. I’ve always wondered what happened. My husband and I love the picture so much, we ordered it and now it hangs in our living room.
