Happy Canada Day 2016!

For The Love of Ki -- 2006 - June 11, 2016 Rest in peace, dear Ki.


I met him on a Friday
in the backyard of a friend
Those deep brown pools of love and need
Did common sense transcend.

By Wednesday I was baffled
Did not know what to do
His sloppy kiss and muddy feet
Across my floors; who knew?

Who knew that I could overlook
This gift of chaos in my life?
Black shining head upon my knee
Became my strength to deal with strife.

His love is unconditional
My love for him is real
Living with my Mastiff friend
Awakened me to feel.

To feel annoyance; yes, at times
While vacuuming the hair
But to feel this inner peace and joy
This love Ki freely shares

Is more than I have ever known
With him, I'm not alone
For Ki I thank my God above
How blessed I am to know this love.
