Licking Tears

what better love
what truer devotion
that my love who sits as close as he can get
waits as long as he can
then licks the tears falling from my cheeks
carefully tenderly
he ministers

his eyes dont leave mine
his paw holds me still
he's not done
sobs concern him
he lowers his head and his brows furrow
what to do

in a minute, in a minute
he waits patiently
knowing things are not right 
he stands guard

true love
true devotion
