“Lucy: A Boy’s Best Friend”
Our gypsy spaniel with kaleidoscope eyes,
Wandered the streets and neighborhood,
Not begging for food, but affection.
How many times did we “rescue” her?
Only to return her to a home and life
From which she was determined to escape.
We know now that she needed us, as much as we needed her.
She was a forgotten, lost soul, who desired a home,
He was an only child who longed for a best friend.
A match made in heaven, when she found her safe haven.
King Midas blessed her fur and her heart.
God crowned him with blonde hair and gentleness.
His face is now adorned with joy, her tail waves endlessly.
Bonded together in play, laughter, and love.
An archaeologist’s most famous discovery,
A precious find for a family.
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,
A companion for a lifetime,
A boy’s best friend forever.
