Love shared by a dog and a human is the pure joy of lying by each other, seeing each others' face after a few hours of departure, and running on each other's side. You love each other merely because of who you are and the bond you share. You are the center of her world, and she is the center of yours. She would be upset when she can't find you, and you would be anxious when she is hiding. You don't need to share common interests; maybe she can't talk about engineering with you, but she would put her head on your arm when you rumble. Her little head is so soft that it melts your heart. Maybe you are not such a great person, but she jumps on you every time she sees you. You don't need to be charming, funny, witty, smart when around her because she doesn't care, not like humans. She just cares if you are here with her, if you can rub her little tummy, if you are alive.
What a good feeling it is that you can care because you care and she cares back because she cares.

loss of youth by Clem Peterson
loss of youth
he’s down there, by the sea.
remembering days of kisses on the hill, outlooking
their sun-and-cloud-kissed kites and the sullen silent
romances between the sky and the sea.
he’s stranded in sorrows.
barefoot on forgotten pebbles, waiting for the current to
take away whatever is left of him.
he’s stranded in a place that is at a loss of words within
and he thinks that after all that time lying on that
windy-white-capped hill, made him stiff.
he has given his humiliated, guilty congratulations
to those who were close to the ones near their end.
remembering that the sun never sets in the memories
that are never to be felt or lived again other than in the
worst disease to be spread among men; nostalgia.
he reminds those to open the cracked-stained windows.
to let the young love-sick souls finally escape the
prison of this world.
while also teaching himself and taming his addiction to
life by reminiscing of how
we’re all surrounded by ghosts,
we’ve just got to learn to live with them.
