A Real Friend
She meets me at the door
each time I return
joyfully; always happy to see me.
She is always there for me,
offering me unconditional love.
She never judges,
never blames and
never calls me names.
Snuggling is her best thing.
And at the end of a long, busy day
she sits under my chair at the dinner table
and waits for me to drop some food.
Her name is Splinky.
