An Ode to Ladu


Where have you gone little one?
Mummy needs you.
She thinks of your softness,
night and day.

Come back little one.
She thinks of your warm body,
breathing, sighing, twitching,
when you sleep.

Do let her see you,
at the gate,
with your adoration filled eyes,
Mummy is home,
with treats no less.

She'll tickle your ears,
and rub your tummy.
Just come back,
With your snuffly wet nose,
and your wagging behind.

She won't make you sit,
She won't say no.
She'll play fetch,
and cuddle all day.

Please, please come back.
Because when life is powerful,
And she is beaten,
Your slobbery love
sends it all away.
