Little Dog

I’m like a little dog


Every time I see you, I light up


When you come home from work, I run to the door to greet you


I wake up beside you every morning but when I see you


It’s like the first time


My heart swells with excitement


Even after five years


I’m like a little dog


Because I’m desperate for your attention


I follow you around the house


Needing to be in the room where you are


Just near you


And when you say something to me or touch me


I’m elated


I’m like a little dog


Because when you lose your temper with me


It ruins my whole day


I run and hide


I won’t come out until you assure me


That you don’t hate me


I’m like a little dog


Because when you’re gone


All I do is sit by the window and wait for you to come home


I’m like a little dog


Because when you snap at me


I don’t understand why


You’re rude


And short with me


And I don’t say anything


I shrink away


I must deserve it


I’m like a little dog


Because no matter how many times you hurt me


I run to you


Because no matter how hard you drive me away


I come back


Because I’m too dumb to see


There’s something else out there


Something better


I’m like a little dog


And I belong to you
