A place to lay my heart

You accept me with all my faults
and everything I do
is watched by you for signs of love,
kind words from me to you.

You wake me up because you are
ready to start the day,
the crazy joy you bring to me,
a dog that wants to play.

I wonder what I will do
when you’re no longer here,
you tell me to enjoy your love
and never shed a tear.

And when some days I stop and sigh –
at times you drive me nuts,
you wiggle waggle my sighs away,
my darling mutt of mutts.
