Dark brown broken by only one strip of white
Strong enough to fight off
The strongest enemies
Kind enough to protect
Against all who did not know how to love
The little steps followed
The strong voice bellowed
At one sight of a true friend
The heart knew, when no one cared
No one helped
This friend will always be there,
Cuddling, loving, caring
In sickness and in good times.
The look of trust, of utmost love
In those round clear eyes,
Were just enough to tell her
She was the best friend he never had before.
Through the roughest of times,
Coldest of nights,
And piercing pain,
He looked out for her
The soft touch of comforting warmth.
But on one stormy night
When he looked around
The warm hand, the soft touch could not be found
He cowered, fear gripped his heart …
Where is she?
His last breath caught in his throat,
One last time he wanted to bid adieu
To his truest friend, who failed him just then;
Quiet in his pain,
With the last thoughts of his friend
He closed the eyes …
The storm could harm no more, never again.
