6th Annual Pets Add Life Children’s Poetry Contest Winners: Travis, 5th Grade

Note: In this series, we’ll spotlight each winner of the 6th Annual Pets Add Life Children’s Poetry Contest.

Pets Add Life Poetry Contest Winner: Travis

Travis and Cisco

Travis is a fighter. He’s survived brain cancer and his buddy, Cisco, was an incredible aid in his journey toward recovery. While pets can’t write prescriptions, sometimes their love and companionship is the perfect medicine and we’re so happy Cisco was there to help Travis persevere.

By: Travis, of Carlsbad, CA

One ear up,
And one ear down.
I always love,
Having you around.

Your are a part of me,
and I am a part of you.
You are the one,
who keeps me persevering through.

Whenever times are hard,
you always keep me strong.
And ever since I got you,
I knew I wasn’t wrong.

I know we’re brothers from different mothers,
but my love for you is rife.
A human is just a human,
until a pet adds life.

Stay tuned to meet the rest of winners. We’ll feature one every day this week.
