Joshua was just a dog
who stumbled over her own paws
when she was just a pup.
I used to pick her up
and run with her through fields at sunset,
let her sleep warm in my arms,
and sometimes in my bed.
And in return, she gave me love.
That may seem strange to those
who never loved a dog
or had a dog love them.
And if it came to choosing friends,
I’d choose from those who had,
Because, when Joshua was gone,
I used to look for her in fields
and sunsets,
and those who had would understand.
