I wrote this short piece while waiting for a friend of mine to pick me up. Buddy was inside barking at me. He hates when he’s left behind. Anyway, I wrote this from Buddy’s point of view.
I don’t want you leaving without me.
I cannot protect you if we’re apart.
What if something happens to you?
I know how much you rely on me;
On my strength.
I know how much it hurts for you to leave me.
I know how happy you are when you return.
I can feel it in your touch.
I can smell it on your skin.
The outside world scares you.
Let me go with you.
No one will hurt you with me around.
You and I are one.
Never leave me because I will never leave you…
Unless I see a squirrel then all bets are off.
Until next time, keep the squirrels out of your yard and your humans in.
