If only my lover were a dog

My world would be complete

She would never drink my champagne

And my cooking she would eat


She would cuddle up beside me

And not hog all the bed

She would be happy getting cuddles

And kisses on her head


She would always be pleased to see me

No matter how bad I look

She wouldn’t nag me for reading

When I turn pages of my book


Her affection would always be honest

A love that’s pure and true

The only downside to all this

Is picking up the poo…


But I will love my dog anyway

My choice is very smart

She may be scruffy, smell a bit

But she’s captured all my heart.
