Life Under the Stars.


Here we are

 Alone at last

Life moves on

 So quick so fast

My bedroom so large

Under the night time sky

The solitude so pleasing

For Archie and I

Just an old mongrel dog

With three legs and one eye

But my faithful old friend

Until the day I die

Staying together

Like two peas in a pod

A life weary mongrel

And a miserable old sod

But we are both what life’s made us

A team till the end

For us both the comfort

Of a park bench our best friend

Who comes in handy most days

For a sleep  and a rest

The times newspaper our blanket

For us it’s nothing but the best

Let just pray that there’s no rain tonight

As we share a morsel together

Just two weary knights of the road

Laying down our heads in all kinds of weather

A nights peaceful rest

To lighten the load

Of our life’s great adventure

Which will continue tomorrow down the road

Just a man and his dog

And their life without sorrow

For the Sun may be shining

Brightly tomorrow

So we will be back on our way

Traveling the road

Like any other day

With just memories our load
