Who likes all the food I like?

Who can keep up when I'm riding a bike?

Who calms me down when I'm mad?

And who touches my face when I'm sad?


Who listens quietly to the things I say?

Who sits close by at the end of the day?

Who listens to secrets but won't ever tell?

And who understands me so well?


Who's never angry when all I do is wrong?

Who stays out on the garden when evening's shadows grow long?

Playing brilliant games with me that seem to go on and on?

And who stares into the fire with me

When Summer's warmth has gone?


Who can run faster than the wind can blow?

Who's got the kindest brown eyes I know?

Who's there when the world seems to end?


My dog. My best friend.
