My best friend 

He does not speak words

But he loves me with his eyes

Eyes that understand so much

He shows me unconditional love

It doesn’t matter what I do he loves me for who I am

Without him there are so many things that I could not have lived through

Without him I would have had no foundation to stand

No one else has stayed by my side … through loneliness… through pain

when I’m upset…when I’m mad…when I’m happy

He is always there…

At the darkest moments in my life

When there is no one there to hug

He is there by my side

With him I can be myself

With him I have nothing to hide

He snuggles with me and shares love that I feel privileged to receive

He means everything to me

I love him with everything that I am

He is not human… he is better… he is my wee man

Love and Devotion

My favorite place to be is by the ocean

I love the sound of the waves

It reminds me of how deeply I feel emotion

So far and vast these feelings flow

Sometimes too much for me to handle

I try to remind myself to go slow

So that I do not feel myself dismantle

Wake up slowly

Try to talk slowly

Keep a safe space

So no one can hurt me

I hope that someday I will let them in

I hope that someday I will jump in

Into the cold depths of the ocean

So you can truly see the extent of my love and devotion
