From a certain perspective

Whats that?

a noise, unfiltered through the night.

My owner he comes to greet me tonight.

the door slides open and out he comes

with love and affection and another song.

He barks and prattles on and on

Such sound, such music, oh sweet serenity.

and then he departs at the end

Faithful and true, he comes again.

He comes and goes when he likes

always bringing such delight.

I wait and watch

and when I see.

I sing a song from me to thee.

You sing a song of understanding

you pat my head with fervor

you sing to me the song of love

of that, I am no doubter.

My legs grow weak as yours grow strong

the lights are dim and strangely wrong

yet still I sing this song to thee.

My song of love and you and me.

then one day a stranger came

your eyes met mine

with love and shame.

Whats that?

a noise, unfiltered through the light.

My owner, he comes to see me tonight.

I dance, I run and race through the green

to sing a song from me to thee.

To my first dog Oso.
