She waits
At the top of stairs,
Looking up with her cloudy eyes,
Cataracts are setting in.
You call her name, no
Reaction, you startle her.
Fourteen years ago
She was a newborn pup.
Center of attention
Now she is forgotten.
She still waits,
Relying on others
Reminiscent of the past
Brown eyes still staring,
Tail wagging,
She waits.
