The moment I saw you, I was lost.
My heart just went Awwww!
I held you for the first time
And you nuzzled into me
And licked my face
As if you knew you had come home to love
I had shut off my heart
Too afraid to be hurt
But you tumbled right into it
With your unabashed adoration
Your antics made me laugh
I could watch you all day long
As you dashed crazily around
Chasing a wooden bangle that
I had dangled on a string for you to play with.
You wheedled your way into my bed
And claimed my pillow too
Soon you took over the entire bed
As you grew
You’re no longer a puppy
But no one seems to have told you so
You career around at breakneck speed
Tugging at cushions and shoes.
Your eyes follow me everywhere
And you need no excuse to lean in to me
You know just what my heart wants
And you sing that song to me.
You are the reason I still live
You are the reason I wake up each day
You are the reason I get out of the house
And make new friends along the way.
Someone up there sent you
To save me from myself
And when I look at you today
My heart still goes ‘Awwww!”
