Joy Parade

When the day is over, and we both

Get home, after another day of work,

She’ll be there. Smiling

By the door.

Even before we turned around the

Corner, her ears will go up,

Knowing we are close. Today

And the days to come.

With her eyes open wide, and a tail

That can stop celebrating,

She’ll welcome us

One more time.

You and I get home, and are

Received by a parade of joy.

Always waiting for us,

To make us smile.

In our memories, she’ll hide,

Every time we return home.

And when we think of her,

The smile will come back.
