He sees me when I’m not myself,

He comforts me with kisses,

He waits for me to come home,

To him I’m all he wishes.


He is not a relative.

He is so much more.

He is a great companion.

He is love and joy galore.




He loves me as I am,

He may be man’s best friend,

But to me he’s next of kin.
