Still waiting for you!


I still remember that day,
The day I met you for the first time
The joy in your eyes,
Swati Ramnath
arms spread out for a hug
You lifted me up in the air,
looked at me adoringly
I must have been a
really cute pup.
I still remember that day,
The day you got me my first toy,
Took me out for a long drive
Played with me all day long
That was the
happiest moment of my life.
I still remember that day
The day I missed you like hell
Waiting for you to get back home
To spend some time alone with you
Did I do something wrong?
I still remember that day,
The day you walked away
Leaving me alone,
in a dark and secluded place
Oblivious to the pain in my heart,
the tears in my eyes,
It’s just a bad dream, I told myself.
Gazing at the sunset sky today.
I find myself still waiting for you
Hoping that you would come one day
To take back your old friend
That would be my last day
as an abandoned dog.
