On Those Unwanted Days of Trial
By Katherine Breanne Parilli
Happy am I most of the time,
with smile sweet,
and heart full of joy
this little pup does look at the world
to find things about it to love.
But once and awhile,
my smile does fade
as my tummy an imaginary rollercoaster does ride,
and my head a whirling derby does endure.
With tears rolling down,
I struggle to endure.
So glad for the strong arms
that faithfully encircles me,
and whisper promises that they will never let go.
Giving me the courage to endure
those unwanted days of trials,
that sadly must pepper even the happiest of pup’s lives.
And look with hope to the future when my delight shall once again return,
and with unbounding wonder I shall live up to my name
and look at the world with eyes befitting a pup named
Happy Go Lucky.
