A Pet's Love
By M. Linda Steffey
An Animal Rights Poem from All-Creatures.org

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.

A Pet's Love
By M. Linda Steffey

You give love
Without any prejudice
And you witness
Without judging my ways
Communicate
Despite any barriers
Make me laugh
Throughout all of my days...

You kindly
Increase self-esteem in me
Distracting
From problems each day...
You make me feel
That I am needed
Giving love
In your silent way...

Mankind..
Take a lesson from loyalty
For loving
Unselfishly pure..
If we follow
God's creatures
Examples..
Pets can give
Mankind a cure....
