THE OLD DOG:
When you´re lost & cannot find your way,
Allow the old dog to walk before you,
When you cannot find right words to say,
In his silence the old dog talks too.
When you feel sad & all alone,
Know the old dog is by your side,
He´s there for your love & not the bone,
He´ll never hurt you & has never lied.
When your soul is light & full of joy,
Share with your friend of many a year,
To him, your happiness his favourite toy,
Run your fingers through his thinning fur.
His velvet nose in the palm of your hand,
Whenever you have the need to talk,
The old dog will know & understand,
All he wants is to go for a walk.
Feel his paw upon your hand,
Too remove from this crazy world, the fog,
If you really want to understand,
Look deep into the eyes,
Of a very old dog.
