You lead the way.
Day by day.
By morning you're up.
I follow your trail.
You circle around me.
I awake by the whip of your tail.
I grab my jacket, while you a leash.
And we start to jog to wake my feet.
A routine you see.
You've taught me to be attentive with haste.
If I wake up with your lead.
You'll pee by the trees and not in the house
by the bookcase.
Although my days are long.
My hours even longer.
The short time we spend together
is a bond that'll never slumber.
