A Walk in the Park

His life is the next meal and walk

We share the sidewalk, but he leads

A deep conversation, but just my talk

Off he goes, to the shrubs and weeds

I hold the leash, he’s really the teacher

Through him, life is revealed

Quiet reverence, the canine preacher

My trivial problems are healed

His trust, I hold in my hand

Every lick, a sign of his love

Into my orbit, a divine plan

Peace follows this four-legged dove

Life is simpler in his kingdom

Being with him is transcendent

His healing power a magical balm

I now realize, he was heaven sent
