Freckles

Game of
Hearts


 

There was a dog
named Freckles
who lived up the street
when we were kids.
Everybody said
he was ugly
but he was
just about
the best friend
I ever had.

Folks used to laugh
and point
their fingers
at “the ugly dog”
as if he
had no feelings,
but I knew different
because he told me
he did.

He didn’t say it
like you and me
talkin
but he said it
with his eyes
and I just knew.

I used to hold him
when he cried,
and he used to lick
my tears
when I cried too.

When he died
I just knew
he went to heaven
cause good dogs do
and he didn’t
have to worry
what he looked like
or what people
would say
because he told
me in my dreams
the very next day.
