As I sit in the house all on my own
I think of how much we both have grown.
I know now that you will come back to me
and you will rub my ears and feed me treats.
From the very first day you always knew
I will always be here to welcome you.
I may not rush to meet you like I should,
but you need to know if I could I would.
When we walk in the park I tire quick,
I no longer chase after toys and sticks.
But as we sit and rest amongst the trees
there’s no other place I would rather be.
I may be old, but it’s just wear and tear,
I sit comfy knowing you’re always there.
You tell me your stories, your highs your lows.
Your secrets are safe, no one needs to know.
You always care for me in every way,
Just know that I love you more every day.
