Since day one my dog's been there for me,
And that is why i'm never lonely.
When there was tears in my eyes,
My dog was there in my surprise.
My dog would die for I,
and I would for him.
He talks to me,
and I yearn to listen.
My dog can be away,
but never distant.
My dog is one who I usually never get to see,
but I feel like he's always next to me.
He gives me air
because he knows i'm set to breathe.
He allows me to succeed.
My doors of opportunity slam close,
but I don't worry;
My dog is my key.
I once thought I never needed my dog.
Until I wrote it out line for line.
But only now I realize,
I had it backwards this whole time.
Oh my God.
