Unconditional Love!

All snuggled up

on my lap again

this white ball of fluff

my forever friend

What is she thinking

what does she see

with those little black eyespper 5a

smiling up at me

She has such patients

this little clown

so full of kindness

when I’m feeling down

This wondrous creature

had to be

sent from above

to watch over me!    Hansi Riley

She is such a wonderful companion, she is on my lap as I type this.  She’s my little cutie. (=

Life goes on and things have changed, cancer took her she’s in heaven now, I will always love and miss her, she will always be with me.

Best Friends

dog and horse 1

My best friends growing up

had four legs… not just two.

They accepted me for what I did

I always knew.

That the love and trust between us

would last forever

strong and true.    Hansi Riley
