I Dreamed a Dream of Friendship

Hello dear friends! Being a little dog, who lives in a more rural community, I don't have as much opportunity to get out and see the world like some of my canine brethren like Lassie, Rin-Tin-Tin, the PetMeds dog, Bella, and some dog named Boo who has his own line of planes. For me, my life is a tad simpler. I tend to rely more on the internet to 'see' the world and make new friends. It has been a real blessing because I have made friends the world over, from countries and continents I cannot even spell much less travel to. For a little dog like me, that is a really big deal.

I have shared my triumphs and tragedies with my far-flung friends, and they have proved through it all to be faithful and true, just as if they lived next door to me. This great information age we live in has made the world a much smaller, cozier place, and has given this little dog so many opportunities to discover how spectacular the world and all its people really are.

I wanted more than anything to find a way to express how I felt about all of my wonderful friends, so one night, I closed my eyes and I dreamed a dream. When I woke up, the words of the following poem just poured into my heart, and I share them now with you. I may not be the best poet, but it is certainly the best this little dog has to offer from her heart. So here is called 'I Dreamed a Dream of Friendship'.

I Dreamed a Dream of Friendship

I dreamed a dream of rose and gold,
I dreamed of friends, both young and old.
The kind of friends who know no bounds,
for they are cats, birds, people, & hounds.
I dreamed of friends, both far and near,
The friends who make my smile appear.
I dreamed of joys that fill my heart,
As lives are shared though lived apart.
You are my treasures, near and far,
It matters little where you are.
My heart belongs to each of you,
So, know I love you when the day is through.
