The Traveler And Levi

He was a traveler

Never stayed long in one place

He camped where he went

Lived on a meager inheritance

And had his best friend Levi

Stand guard in the tent

Giving him unconditional love

When he reached his mid forties

He had an itch to stay put

Find a small piece of land

When Levi could run

And he could put a trailer on

The road had been rough on him

And on Levi too

***

 Four years down the road

The authorities knew they both died

At almost the exact same time

Knowing one could not live

Without the other one
