Two souls, one human, one canine, embraced
A moment of shared admiration, love and trust
Once wary, timid and unsure, we took our time and grew
A sniff, a stroke at first, then a cuddle and now this moment
Head-to-head, eye to eye, bodies relaxed, we stare into each other’s souls, nothing exists but us, captured in a moment.
A bond of never-ending faithfulness, adoration, respect and love.
Both hearts swelling with mutual feeling and emerging love.
My master’s words capture our interwoven feelings, the moment, of our bonding.
The collective memory of our moment, the moment our souls entwined.
Stephen has had a love of writing and poetry from an early age, influenced by his travels. Now he is focused on several key areas, mental health and bereavement, Scottish history and landscapes and social outcomes. He lives in a small town called Buckie in the Northeast of Scotland. He hopes one day to publish a poetry anthology charting his own mental health from its lowest point, through recovery on to living a happy and healthy lifestyle, in order to help other who maybe suffering in silence.
