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. (=

Things of changed, cancer took her she’s in heaven now, I will always love and miss her

Goodbyes

Part of my heart lives far away,

in different parts of town.

It’s fun to get together

and I love the time we have.

These pieces of me

they come and go,

throughout the months and years.

Though, sometimes when they leave,

I fight some sneaky tears.

Not really cause of sadness,

as my kids go to and fro

I guess it’s cause I love them,

and just hate to see them go.

charlie browns goodbye

A friend from long ago…

Long ago as I would ride

through mountains and the glen

he would ride beside me

 keeping me company,

my old friend.

Through bad times and the good ones

he’d join me on the trail.

He must have sensed my loneliness

cause he’d show up,

just about then.

I’d see him in the distance

and his smile would soon ensue.

Though he never hugged or touched me

that he cared

I always knew.

His words were spoken softly

to each one, I listened well.

About his wild adventures,

such great stories he would tell.

But sadly, as the years went by

I’d see him less and less.

His absence brought me sadness

though I figured he knew best.

 Many years had passed on by,

 when in my mind he reappeared.

In a time of stress and darkness

his words, they reassured

and I found myself remembering

the lonely girl I used to be

and how much joy and pleasure

his company brought to me.

Then, the thought occurred,

that I was finished being alone.

For now, he had returned…

I must have called him home.

Best Friends

dog and horse 1

My best friends growing up

had four legs… not just two.

They accepted me for what I did

not just

for what they thought

I should do.

They never said “I love you”

but through their actions

I always knew.

That the love and trust between us

would last forever

strong and true.    Hansi Riley
