Without a cape, he flies. Boundless love, holding my heart in his eyes. He waits for my cue. And he walks beside, or follows with humbleness. A gentle nudge or hug— exactly what I need. While he breathes, I’ll never be alone. My German Shepherd Dog, never one more brave. While I sleep, he guards. Loving and loyal, his lifelong love selflessly gifted to me.
