Dogs Are Healers

Without the word a dog
seems to know
licking a wound
can heal it.

When I am ill, my dog
will lie beside me,
breathing slowly,
‘til I feel better.

Sometimes the dog
dies young because he takes
the physical stress
and consumes it as his own.

Soldiers from war 
feel their anxiety
leave when they have 
a dog beside them.

Frighten children 
are calm and serene
reflecting the mood 
of their pet

with their protector 
to guard them.
