Canine Comfort

I miss the smell of a dog's lick
smug on my nose
gentle and non-judgmental
a lick that says
I love you
and
I tolerate you
in the most earnest way I have ever been told
those two things simultaneously
a lick that caresses
I forgive you
and
I want to get to know your nose
all at once
I miss those doggy licks
embracing
loving
assuring
me that my heart still remembers how to soar
