Empty Heart

When I first met you it was a struggle
You wanted everything your way
I tried and tried to show you
How I wanted you to stay
You escaped my boundaries
Once running free
I captured you and you captured my heart
The struggles and strife you’ve put me through
I wouldn’t change a thing
The time spent together was like solitude, however I was not alone
I never understood you, it was like a foreign language you spoke
You still always listened to me, well almost always
The rides in the car, a day at the beach, that time you stole my lunch
Time passed too quickly, I want you to be mine forever
But life has other plans,
I’ll be alone with the memory of your loyalty friendship and devotion
I didn’t deserve such a wonderful companion, My heart to treasure you always
My lifelong friend, my dog.
