Jake’s Ball

it wasn't very
long ago,
jacob was a pup.

he's older now;
with aching bones,
and now they 
call him jake.


he has his ball 
and memories,
of things that
he has done.

(he doesn't walk 
so fast these days, 
hardly ever runs)


he is just a 
tiny furry dog
who doesn't 
understand

if you were to 
pick him up
he'd fit right 
in your hand


it wasn't very
long ago,
jacob was a pup.

he's older now;
with aching bones,
and now they 
call him jake.
