Today I’m a lost dog
Pining for an owner

The indlugence of
A bed to myself
Can’t compensate for
Waking up alone

The waitress makes
Eye contact and smiles
When she brings my coffee

And its all I can do
Not to sit
Like a good dog
Tail wagging
Tongue lolling
Waiting for a pat

Today I’m no lone wolf
Give me a comfy sofa
And a lap to rest my head
