Woof!” I said as you started the car, “Hooray!” I said, it’s my first time afar…..
The scents we were passing were all new to me, For it was my first introduction to this mystery.
As we got out of the car I embraced you with joy, After all you remembered to bring my favourite toy!
You threw it once or twice, of which I retrieved, But on the third it seemed you were ready to leave.
You threw it long and hard and I chased it like lightning, But when I turned to bring it back I saw a sight quite frightening.
I gripped my toy hard as I tried to comprehend What it was I did wrong to make our relationship end.
You walked back to your car as I sat there still loyal. Why am I subservient and you so royal?
Your engine started, and you peeled out into the night, You didn’t even care about my overwhelming fright.
As I sat in my pose determined you would come back, The sun faded behind me while the surroundings turned black.
Day after day I stayed in that park, Lying… waiting… too feeble to bark.
As I lay there dying thinking of you master, I asked myself how I got into this horrifying disaster.
With my last breath of life, I whispered your name Then I collapsed in a heap overrun by pain.
Why didn’t you love me master? Why didn’t you care? Had I no significance, was I just a clump of hair?
I stayed there master and I waited for you I guess taking care of me was just too much to do.
I’m gone now master, no more You-and-I But what I can’t figure out is why you didn’t even say goodbye…
