Ode to a guide dog
From Guide Dogs
Earlier this week one of our fantastic campaigners and poet Dave, pictured below, sent us this wonderful poem about a guide dogI hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
“When the time has finally come on eyes you can’t rely
You’ve lost your independence need some help to just get by
Just know that I’ll be waiting hoping I will be your match
I’ll get you out of your front door turn the key unlock the latch
If you are short of confidence then mine is yours to lend
For I will give you all I have just trust your four legged friend
Together new adventures through my harness lead the way
My eyes will keep you safe and sound your love will be my pay
When all the faces disappear I’ll be at your left side
In blindness feel like drowning with my paw I’ll turn the tide
For ever since I was a pup for this I have been trained
So let me be your guide dog be your eyes when visions drained.”
Let me know what you think of the poem and I’ll pass your comments on to Dave. Have a great weekend!
PS There’s still time to invite your MP to our Talking Buses stand at Party Conference next month!
