when I’d give you puppy eyes,
you’d smile and reach out to hold me,
and I’d jump at the invitation.
As you held me in your arms,
you’d be covered in wet kisses;
then we’d settle in for the evening
snuggling on the couch.
Since I could see better in the dark,
I’d protect you from all harm;
and as you peacefully slept,
I’d be right there by your side.
We’d tell each other secrets
and share our hopes and dreams;
We’d be the best of friends,
forever and till the end.
