Old Dog in a Locket

 

Old dog in a locket

That lays next to my heart

I will always love you

As I did right from the start.

 

You were right beside me

Through the darkest of my days

It was your kind and gentle nature

That made me want to stay.

 

Now I hold you in my arms

Your breath still warm against my hand

Our hearts still beat together 

And I wonder if you understand.

 

I snipped the hair from around your eyes

So I would always see

The beauty that surrounds me

Even in times of need.

 

I snipped the hair from around your ears

So I would always hear

Music in the distance

To quiet my fears.

 

I snipped the hair from across your back

To bring me strength in time of need

And the power of your essence 

Would always be with me.

 

I snipped the hair from around your heart

That beat in time with mine

So I would know that love would find me

At some distant time.

 

And so, your life slipped out of mine

One a quiet spring like day

But I knew that a part of you

Was always here to stay.

 

Old dog in a locket

That lays next to my heart

I will always love you

Even though we had to part.
