a/n: Again, quickedit fails me. There should be breaks after every third line. A poem about one of my favortie things.

It doesn't mind being alone for a month

Years pass and it will still sigh happily

Glad to see you

It won't feel slighted like a friend whose birthday

You seemed to have forgotten

Just ready to begin anew

It won't hold grudges with a clenched fist

You'll find it open and then

Calming, it waits for you to begin

It will be patient and grow old with you

But always ready for adventure

Man's best and most daring friend
