He took me for a walk today.

We went to Uncle Tree’s to play.

He held my paw along the way,

so I could move, and swing, and sway.

*

I love the boy, and he loves me!

He hugs his teddy tenderly.

On our way home, I chanced to see

a leprechaun out running free.

*

I’d heard about such things before

in fairy tales and old folk’s lore,

but never ever had I seen

a little man dressed all in green.

*

He waited ’till we’d gone on past

to run across the road real fast.

He quickly vanished in the trees,

where rainbows dwell and life’s a breeze.

This growing monumental mound

will hide my grief on sacred ground.

.

A daily prayer, a daily grind,

a rock a day to ease my mind.

“To reach the sky! To find my love!

To live the dream I’m dreaming of!”
