No Tricks

The old dog sees me coming close
and struggles to get up.
I reach down to pet him
and he shakes to his feet
shambling away from me
searching for a better place to rest
in peace.

I am sorry, old dog,
for disturbing your quiet time.
I only wanted to offer
some kind of comfort.
Clearly
you were doing fine
all by yourself.
