You look at me with eyes of love;
you never hold a grudge,
You think I'm far too wonderful
to criticize or judge.
It seems your greatest joy in life
is being close to me.
I think God knew how comforting
Your warm, soft fur would be.
I know you think you're human,
But I'm glad it isn't true.
The world would be a nicer place
If folks were more like you!
A few short years are all we have;
One day we'll have to part.
But you, my pet, will always have
A place within my heart.
