Something lighter. I was inspired to write this after watching Hachi the movie.
­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ ­ For Hachiko,
­Inspired by the greatest story ever told.
­ ­
­For nine years he sat at the station doors,
­so patient and so loyal.
­With a faithful bond, that was so strong,
­masked a heart full of turmoil.
­ ­
­He found his friend on unusual terms,
­terms that were meant to be.
­And a kinship grew as nature knew,
­that would mark history.
­ ­
­They weren't master and apprentice,
­nor like father and a son.
­They were merely just two vessels,
­but a life force that was one.
­ ­
­A lesson can be learnt from them,
­of this I can assure.
­That there was never a stronger bond,
­than a human and a paw.
­ ­
­Nine years he had waited,
­with unconditional love.
­Waiting not for his friends return,
­but their reunion up above.
­ ­
­This is not displayed in humanity,
­that is why we have grown cold.
­But I feel that he was teaching us,
­with the greatest story ever told.
