My Neighbour's Dog

The only difference between him and i
Is he does not realize that he will die
The old black dog whose muzzle has turned gray
Like me he too has known a far better day
His master Jim says he is my greatest mate
He welcomes me each evening at the gate
A truer friend one could not wish to know
Though the years have left him frail and walking slow
Canines do have a brief physical prime
And than us are granted far less living time
But my neighbour's dog no less mortal than me
The Reaper of lives creates equality
Between all life forms and since we are born to die
My neighbour's dog no less mortal than i.
