Recently my friend lost his dog and the loss was sudden and heartbreaking. It made me think of the first time my dog and I really looked at each other and how that moment has been with me for the last six years- and how it always will be with me. It’s etched on my heart
Will you protect me from the monsters?
Will you shelter me from the rain and loneliness
will you never use my name in the same breath as a curse or in anger?
Will you be my best friend forever? My Puppy’s heart asked mine the first time I looked into his eyes.
I am promise, I said.
I swear it.
Okay, Hamish said, ” I believe you.”
“I trust you.”
Word of the Day Challenge: Trust
