8 year old Tara found them drenched to the skin in the rain,
Crouched silently on the wet soil, fragile and meek, their eyes reflecting hunger and pain –
But, little did she know, as she carried them home, that she would never again have to be alone,
Little did she know, she finally had found the family she could call her own,
Little did she know they would soon become an irrevocable piece of her heart,
Little did she know that her furry four-legged friends would stick to her, until death did them apart!
They don’t demand, they don’t complain,
You find yourself turning to them for solace, for answers, when you’re in pain,
Good, bad or ugly, they stay with you for everything you are,
They help you heal your every wound, your every scar,
Bitch about, bicker with or betray, they’d never let you go, you’ll always find them by your side,
Books – they truly are your best friends; with them, there are no conditions applied!
My first love, my soulmate
My best friend, my confidante
My each day begins with you and ends with you,
Books, What will my life be, without you?
