A Loyal Buddy

I talk to him when I'm lonesome,
and I'm sure he understands.

 When he looks at me so attentively,
and gently licks my hands;

Then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes,
but I never say naught there at,

For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes,
but never a friend like that!"

--W. Dayton Wedgefarth
