A free verse poem of my best friend easing tension.

My Dog as a Stress Reliever

After that difficult day of stress,
She is always there to ease the tension.

Whenever sadness controls my feelings,
My dog knows how to produce that smile on my face.

As terror creeps up on my nerves and brain,
Roxy’s presence provides tranquility to my entire body.

If rage starts to build up inside my veins,
My pet can offer calmness that runs through my bloodstream.

My animal will always be my best friend,
And my protector from harmful emotions in this imperfect world.

Yeah, there's a reason they're man's best friend

I found this comforting... I don't have a dog, two cats, and they're the best of companions :) But the words here made me think of dogs specifically trained to help out PTSD sufferers... They're special, aren't they? Thanks.
