My Joy

My Joy

Sitting on the steps

Enjoying the warm sun

Petting your golden fur

As you put your paw on my arm

Hanging with the ladies

As they run around chasing bugs

Giving them pets

And trying to give them hugs

Having dinner with my family

As we talk about our day

The subject of poop always comes

And if no one says it

My dad will say it anyway

I love my life

And am grateful to be me

I know this is where I belong

And I’m who I’m meant to be
