Guide Dog

You served your time with dignity old friend. You. So devoted ever vigilant. Never once did you fail to hear my needy call. Never once did you falter. Now I see you more than my eyes ever saw. My blindness has no disability now. You and I, we were a team. A great team. The best. Now, your dimming eyes and mine are much the same. You can’t direct my blackened path, anymore. I shall miss you. I have a new caretaker now and you must be retired. I will weep a Well of tears. Yes, lead laden from the core of my heart, tears. You and I will always be a team. Even though I have a new boss to follow, to lead my fumbling, unsteady way.
