Puppy Love Really Awfully Enduring

Roll over Donny Osmond – here’s my own original version on the theme:

They all just call it puppy love:

While I admit that’s true,

It’s one I know, push comes to shove,

Will last a lifetime through.


I yearn for him when we’re apart

And want to spend each day

Close to the one who has my heart,

And never go away.


He is so handsome, kind and bold,

And loving to extreme;

To have him mine, to love and hold,

Is like a happy dream!


He has this lovely sense of fun,

And makes all laugh out loud,

But when he shows that I’m the one

I truly do feel proud.


I am neglecting every friend,

And that does cause some strife,

But friendships start, and friendships end  –

What I have, is for life!


It is quite sad, admittedly,

For I can clearly tell

The boy who gave my pup to me

Is now as mad as hell!

      Hope I didn’t ruin the memory! 🙂
      No, this is a pic taken years ago which seemed to fit. In fact, it is a second choice – the one now permanently on FB is of little white Gemma.
