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.
