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.
