Companion

There you are,
All decked out,
Ready as always

For the festivities

Set out,
And all about
Us

As we travel, you,
And I,

Toward another year,
But, first,

Christmas is here,
And we’ll celebrate
Together,
No matter the weather,

Because
You’re always there,
My friend,
On which I can rely

Even when
I’m not feeling
All that well,

And I sigh

In frustration, you
Come, and check
On me,

Nuzzling your head
Against my hand,
Waiting

For the mood

To change from
Bad to good,

And what
do you know?

The mood shifts,
Because you are swift
In your ways,
Knowing just what’s

Needed
To change the tide

It’s always the same
With you and I,

Let’s just say it’s so,

You’re my companion
My hero, best friend
And champion
