Loyalty Unbounded

by Charlie Flynn
(Vancouver, Canada)

Hard to fathom fourteen years have gone by
Little white puppy bounding up to us on the fly
Protector loyal and never seeking pity just love
We can still hear your cheerful barking from above

Gone but not forgotten as you asked for nothing from us
Gave so much and stood strong and brave with never a fuss
Try to have patience and wait outside heaven's gate
Don't bark or whine just lay quietly and for Baron wait

Clouds will make your beds warm and soft at night
During the day, you can once again dart around and fight
Powder, without hesitation or equivocation you loved us so much
It is our turn to reflect and your memory to our heart clutch

Bye Bye Powder see you soon enough at the same gate
Play with Baron when he gets there don't sit any more and wait!
We'll catch up and find you two soon enough up there
Your loyalty for Eternity us as you will always share

Not for ego, earthly gain or any reward did you serve
Simply happy to protect, play and watch with steady nerve
Best friend does not seem a strong enough phrase
To ever explain the bond and your reward simply a little praise.
