Dear little Daisy
is our family’s resident healer.
My big guy came home from school
with a fever today
and crashed on the couch
under his big red comforter.
She was there right away,
watching him intently,
ready to give licks and love
at a moment’s notice.
She will camp out with
anyone who’s under the weather,
her warm body nestled up
as close as can be
for hours at a time.
And as she curled up
with her boy, he said,
“She can make me feel better,
because she’s just like an angel.”
