I miss your wagging tail and the perfect way you snuggled in the morning
I miss your wet nose and your silly chicken legs
I miss you on our walks and how you smelled every flower
I miss you on the couch when I’m watching TV
I miss you in my car and how you drooled on the windows
I miss you at work when you hugged everyone you saw
I miss you when I unlock the door and you’re not there to see me
I miss you licking crumbs that I dropped everywhere.
I miss you when I’m crying and you’re not there to lick my tears
I even miss cleaning up the messes you made
And I’d do it every day just to have you back home again.
