Take it in; that luscious new smell.
Just one touch and you suddenly feel secure.
Their warmth spreads like an epidemic.
You wrap your arms around for comfort
clutching your best friend like you
grab your phone after a long day.
Oh the things you do for your
new intriguing partner;
Dressing them up like a Christmas tree
and giving them treats as good as
homemade ice cream.
innocent and harmless
they illuminate like stars in the night sky
It brightens your day coming home to
a puppy wagging his tail.
When it snows they leave tiny imprints
on the ground
so tiny and precious
that imprint will soon melt away
but will stay with you all the way.
