Warts And All

I want you to see me
flawless, perfect, unblemished

To show the very best
that I know I have inside

And yet...

You find me in my mistakes
dirty, scarred, uncharitable

And the surprise is
You love me for those things

The miracle in being
That those things I wish most to hide

Are the endearments that draw you
And cause you to be perfect in my eyes

I am old.
I am not the puppy I once was.

But I can still run
In dreams full of endless meadows and rabbits.

There are many things I will not do.
I won't go for walks.
I won't listen to the word no.
I won't go back to sleep early in the morning.
I won't volunteer for rides in the car.

But I will love you
With all my heart.

And I will also always steal from the trash when I can.
I hope you understand.

I  was born to be the companion of a king
or a queen

But I'm happy to be a companion
to you

Let's just sit here together
for a while

And then later, I'll let you wait on me
hand and foot

Just remember when you'e sad
I'll be the one

To lick away your tears and listen
To all that's on your heart

This is the real reason you wait on me
and treat me like a queen

The world is my oyster
Full of people just waiting
to pet me
to give me treats
to adore me
to take me places
to love me...

Just for being sweet little me

Let me always be with you
And I'll be infinitely happy
