My eyes speak but they do not hear.
I’m just one of many with all the same fears.
I’ll be your best friend, as loyal as they come.
I watch and wait for you patiently from the moment you are gone.
I’m a little hot in this sweater but that’s ok with me.
I’ll do whatever it takes to make sure you’re happy.
I will defend you to the death, until the last beat of my heart.
Just promise we’ll always be together, let nothing tear us apart.
I am the face of countless shelter dogs and the wishful thought of every stray.
I am yours. You are mine. Always and forever will I stay.
Please don’t change your mind about me and abandon me one day.
My life won’t stand a chance and I’ll be tossed in a nameless grave.
I’ll hope for a rescue, like wishing on a star.
I’ll hold on to our memories, hoping the best for you wherever you are.
