Cat pillow dog blanket

I have a friend very close to me
Who wonders why it was meant to be

Why are we here? What is it for
Is there any reason to be here at all?

I do not know, there are no words
To justify why we are in the world

All I have is all I know
That I am glad for this moment now

To be alive and to be aware
To be a part of our world to share

So while we breathe – live in harmony
For each life forms the world’s company

Dogs and cats and humans too
Snakes and rats and a kangaroo

For without this life breathed into us
It would all be bleak, nothing to discuss

So let us praise, let us rejoice
Let us sing with a joyful voice

For this common force, the world we share
For our earth and pure magic air

  1. Found your place as a result of your recent decision to follow Learning from Dogs. What beautiful words of poetry! So a double reward for me, reading your poetry and having you follow my very inferior scribblings! Thank you!
