She was standing on a bridge, watching the sun go into the water
A sight she usually cherished while watching it in the company of Peter
Where had he gone?
She had loved him with all her heart, now she felt torn
They had played, they had cuddled, he had taught her things
A tear dropped into the water, forming rings
Her past life flashed through her head,
Her brow furrowed as she contemplated the hard times ahead
What would she do?
She hoped to wake up from a nightmare to find this was all untrue
She wandered through the city, feeling empty inside
Feeling confused, dejected, lacking the usual spring in her stride
She thought about the time they first met
A memory she could never forget
But the question still haunted her – why had he left her?
They had been no signs of things turning bitter
She continued to walk around sadly
She was startled by the sound of a car honking madly
She turned around and saw that familiar face
She couldn’t believe it, her heart began to race
He ran towards her, tears in his eyes
There was absolutely no hint of that he did despise
She bounded towards him and knocked him down
He was hurt but bore no frown
“Xena”, he said, “Where have you been?
“I rushed home from the airport and you were nowhere to be seen”.
It was then it hit her, he had merely gone on holiday
How had she her let mind go astray?
And just like that, she felt no pain
There they were, dog and owner, together again.
