Short poem about my dog. It's not in any particular style, and the stanza's have no rhyme or reason, so sorry if drives you crazy. This was just something I wanted to write. Anyway, she's got hip dysplasia, and probably only has a few years before it gets so bad I'll have to put her down. Hence the sad ending, but I hope it's nice to read regardless. ~Song~


Hey, girl, don't you know I love you?
Don't you know I love you too?
And you know I'd love for you to live forever.
But our time isn't made to last.
So, girl, don't you know I love you too?

More dedicated than a boyfriend.
Much closer than a best friend.
I know there's not a day gone by,
When you weren't glad to see me.
So, girl, don't you know I love you too?

I still laugh when you get excited,
Bounce around the house like a puppy.
Arm's splayed in the cutest way.
And even when you get on the counter,
Girl, don't you know I love you too?

The way you put your paw on my shoulder,
When I sit in front of the couch,
Or rest your head on my chest,
Like I'm the only place you want to be,
Girl, don't you know I love you too?

You always look at me so intently,
Waiting for me to call you, maybe?
Always trying for my attention,
Cause you know I can't resist that face.
So, girl, don't you know I love you too?

But, you know, you really irritate me.
This trash thing has got to stop.
And please stop head butting my hand,
When I'm trying to send a text message.
Even so, girl, don't you know I love you?

I absolutely hate it, girl!
When you jump on my bed with muddy paws.
I just washed those sheets!
No! Not my pillows too!
Even so, girl, don't you know I love you?

And it seems I never learn my lesson,
Because when I let you back up,
I wake up to your vomit by my head,
And another day of laundry,
But even so, girl, how I love you!

I try to be optimistic,
Because I really love you,
But I know our time is short,
Yet, I can say I'm glad I had it!
Because, girl, you know I love you too.

Let's make this time special,
The few years that we have,
But we both know I'm the one,
That has to remember to treasure it,
Even with my faults, I love you too.

So, precious baby girl,
I won't ever leave you,
I won't ever let you go, you know,
I won't have another friend like you,
Because, girl, I love you too.
