A Lesson on Love

My dog and I do not speak the same language.

Yet every day, she tells me:

I trust you to know when I need to go for a walk.

I will let you hold me when you need to

and I will ask you for love when I need it.

On the days you are sick, I will lie beside you.

I will look for you in rooms when you are not here,

and I will greet you with so much joy

when you come home.

I will guard you when you sleep.

I will wag my tail and let you know

that everything will be okay

on your bad days,

and I know that you will do

the same on mine.

And from this I learn that my dog

and I actually do speak the same language.

After all, the universe is a kindly ancient thing.

It gave love as a mother tongue to every being.
