Sugarfoot #3

Sugar came to comfort me
When she saw that I was crying,
Put her paws around my neck,
Lay against me softly sighing.
I had trusted where I shouldn’t
I’d been badly hurt that day,
Sugar’s whiskers stroked my face
And gently wiped my tears away.

What does Sugar know of grief?
What does she know of betrayal?
All the pain she’s ever felt
Was a rudely stepped-on tail.
Still she answered to my need
Far better then did humankind.
I held her close against my heart,
Loyal friends are hard to find.
