Rain Reflections

Today was a day for reflections. With Rain by my side, the sun upon my face, I sat and thought about life.

Life is a journey
with many paths
to tempt and tease
but stay true.

Take not the wayward path
but the path of goodness
to lead to the path of life
and happiness.

Look deep into your dog's eyes
and what  you will see
is a reflection of your soul
of who you really truly are.

Hope that the person that you see
is one your dog can be proud of
of one that stands tall
and trusts with all of the heart.

Today I looked into Rain's soul
we smiled at each other
she leaned against my feet
and I brushed her with love.

My journey with her started with her dam
so many long years ago
and now it is passed on to her
and she walks by my side.

My journey with her
is of trust and love
and together we gathered the sheep
and again sat by each other's side.

The sun beat down upon us
and we looked up in the sky
and we both saw our journey
has just started to begun.
