Ode du Collie

Written by Ken Carman


(Dedicated to our loving companion: Frankincense the tri-color collie.)

I wait every day
Hoping you’ll come home
Dreaming you’ll play with me

You are my everything

I can’t sing
I can’t talk
Though I try
Desperate attempts
That only arrive
In moans
Groans
And sighs

I believe you
Even when you lie
I forgive you
When you won’t even try

You are my everything

I can’t remember a single moment
When there wasn’t a you
For me
And perpetual hope
Once again
You’ll throw a frisbee

You are my everything

And when you throw…
When it soars
I can think of absolutely nothing
I want more
Than to play with you

You are my everything.
