Devotion, Love, Adoration, Loyalty...Something we all long for, but seldom receive...
And yet, so often we do not recognise it even when it is under our nose...
Perhaps it is time we opened our eyes....and felt the tug of our heartstrings....

If...A Tail With A Twist...

If you kept me in your pocket,
kept me close within your heart...
Then I would not feel so lonely..
When time away, pulls us apart.

If I could be your faithful shadow..
keeping close, thanks to the light..
Then I would never have to leave you..
if a lamp was lit at night...

If I could be the breath you're taking..
my oxygen will make you live...
If I could be a part of you..
Such pleasure, this to me, would give..

But I am just a humble
And you, my Master, I adore..
So I shall wait until you come home...
And loyally greet you at the door.
