My Mom's Lab, By Brian37

My Mom’s Lab, By Brian37

 

With graying  fur

And drooping spine

A happy lick

In her decline

 

If she could play

In a gridiron game

With knee of sprain

She’d tape it up without complain

 

She still tugs

And wants to sniff

Green shrubs and sticks

The leash in tension to her whims

 

Her stubbed tail

Wags hello

To great the new

At her door

 

And with my cat

She pokes and prods

With playful batting

My feline responds

 

Oblivious to numbers

In repeating calendars

Her mind still young

Cranking forward

 

What ever rust

On that cog

Is oiled well

By attitude

 

 Adversity must be

A joke to her

A flee to flick

Not to ponder

 

When in my twilight

I hope to have

Her disposition

Of  determination

 

Just keep going

Just keep smiling

Just be happy

While you have time
