it takes my dog a while to recover

when hes been left too long alone

hell follow us everywhere we go

to reassure himself were still here

looking panicked as we near a door

when we sit hell sit right next to us

as close as his doggy decency allows

reconnecting with the pack he loves

yet who left him all alone, once again

a sad little puppy, worried and forlorn

but with no words to speak his need

or to tell us how we did him wrong


some days I think I know

just how he must feel
