Only you and I can help the sun rise each morning. If we don't, it may drench itself out in sorrow - Joan Baez

Always waiting
No, the dog never left
You may not have ever come again

He stayed
His gift to you
Months passed by slowly, with much pain

The dog was so worn
He had a desire to go home
He could not

Promises are far greater than time
One last month passed on
There you came walking by

His tears burned with sadness
Not even a glance can you give to him
There was somebody else by your side

You stared into his scorched eyes and recognized him
No one had to say it, he knew

The dog buried his head into his freezing paws
Then, the misery was lifted

The author's comments:

You cannot count on everyone all the time, especially the people you love. It takes a special kind of person to stay around. A dog is very loyal, and he wont ever leave your side.
