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.
