OLD BLUE


OLD BLUE

Old Blue that was his name

The best damn dog I ever had

It almost seemed he could read my mind

He was always good, and never bad.

 

I found him on the back porch

He looked so thin and cold

I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him

So I picked him up to hold.

 

He couldn’t have been no bigger

Than my two hands held together

His tail showed a little life

And I knew he would be mine forever.

 

I raised him all those days from there

Even taught him a trick or two

He was always by my side

The two of us were stuck like glue.

 

Then one day  I got old it seemed

And Blue he even got older

When  I went to give him his breakfast

He didn’t move and his skin was colder.

 

I  lost my best friend that day

Now I had no reason to live

Old Blue had kept me company

He had so much love to give.

 

I sit here with tears in my eyes

As I look out over the grounds

I sure do miss that dog I admit

Miss seeing him run around.

 

Lord you brought me a friend

And now you took him away

Do you think my day will come

When he and I can play?

 

I rock in my worn out rocker

And I look up to the skies

I thought I heard a familiar bark

Then I wipe the tears from my eyes.
