My Big Nose Baby

my big nose baby
beautiful lady
love of my life
you are a part of me

i love the way
you wait for me
ever so

the way you lie there
with crossed paws
oblivious of
how gorgeous you are

how you tilt your nose
up in the air
to take in the scent
that’s lingering there

or the way you
so passionately chew
those delicious bones
you dig into

with eyes half closed
and ears that flop
there isn’t a drop
of you i don’t adore

you even chase
the bees from me
trying to eat them

love of my life
you make me feel so free
let’s run away together you and me

if you were bigger
a little bigger
i’d ride you bareback
down the river

while you galloped
through the wind
that brushed against
my naked skin

or if i was
of your kind
i’d run through the desert
by your side

brushing against you
as we played
then curled by you
at the end of the day

we’d swim in the ocean
jump through the waves
roll on the sand
and explore the caves

i’d follow you
through the bush
you the beautiful
little huntress

sweetest elsa
beautiful lady
golden lashes
heart melting eyes

when we’re playing
and i look at you
you turn your head
peaking through

the corner
of your eye
pretending not to see me
look at you

body of husky
coat of golden lab
dogality only
you could have

finding comfort
in the back seat
with the most creative poses
i’ve ever seen

i love the way
you so delicately
take the cookie
from my hand

the way you tilt your head
then lick your chops
then beautifully yawn
in contentment

querida elsitta
love of my life
where would i be
were you not a part of me

remember when
i took you in
you were just a tiny
little thing

you grew into
my coolest companion
and most
compassionate friend

when i go traveling
and i call
i hear you howling
down the hall

and when i’m gone
for too long
listening to you
makes me cry too

you taught me how
to love again
i thank you deeply
for that lesson

now i watch you sleep
by the door
curled up on some
hotel room floor

and i grieve a little
at the brevity
of the time that you have
here with me.
