Sometimes I forget…
How lonely I was without you…
How I hit my knees when I first saw you…
How I cried the first time I had to leave home without you.
And when I look down,
To see you curled in my lap,
Your warm belly draped over my legs,
I forget the puke-stains and mistakes,
Because all I can feel,
And all I ever wanted,
Was hot puppy breath on my face.
Thanks for being mine.
