"Sitting On The Dock"

dock dog  



One foggy day
While strolling on the pier
The sound of distant fog horns
Was all you could hear



I sat upon that old dock
Engulfed in the fog
When out of nowhere
Come a sweet little dog



Right behind him
With flaming red hair
A woman so beautiful
I couldn't help but stare



She sat down beside me
We soon began to talk
How happy I was
I had picked that rickety old dock



She asked me questions
About my life
Was I married
Did I have a wife



It started to get dark
She had to leave
Said every thing is possible
If only we believe



I slowly walked home
Feeling terribly low
Knowing she liked me
Yet I let her go



Was only a few weeks later
While taking a walk
I sat in the same place
On that old familiar dock



I was there for an hour
Sitting in the fog
When I heard a whimpering
It was the same sweet dog



Many years have gone by
Since we strolled on that dock
Reminiscing about that night  
And our very first talk.
