He Waited For You (poem)



He waited for you.

His tail wagging, his ears perked up as you drove away.

He waited for you.

As you left the drive, he laid his head upon his paws. Content to stay until you returned.

He waited for you.

So patient, he lay there until the sun turned to shade.

He waited for you.

The cool breeze ruffling his coat as he listened for the sound of your truck.

He waited for you.

As my tears damped his fur, he never doubted your arrival.

He waited for you.

While the dew fell on him and darkness cloaked him.

He waited for you.

    I always think how sweet and loyal dogs are to be left all day! 😦 🙂 (sad AND happy!)


  3. This made me want to cry because I remembered “Hatchi” our mongrel who we had to leave under the care of our nice neighbor when we moved about 4 months ago. We had to move to make things work for our family and unfortunately the new apartment doesn’t allow dogs.
    Found you though Valerie’s blog party.
