Mattie and I sit on the shore alone,
Wrapped together to fight the damp.
I am content to sit here with her,
Before we head back to our camp.
All I need is her unconditional love,
A pot to cook, and a lamp for some light.
No oven or other electric devices
Could make this day any more right.
Thank God for our pets who love us
In their own steadfast, inimitable ways.
They bring joy to our hearts and souls,
As they share our bad and good days.
