Your heart

At the heart institute for treatment
But your heart is in perfect health
As loving as it can be
As patient as it can be
As joyful as it can be

No treatment needed for this compassionate heart
If anything we need to find how
Your heart became what it has become
Needless to say the trials of life have purified it
Needless to say prayer has burnished it

You may be in the heart institute for treatment
But your heart is in much better shape than ours…

Puppy dog eyes…

Puppy dog eyes
The look of adoration
That pleading look
The look of helplessness
Gentleness
Meekness
The look that says my happiness
Depends on you

Puppy dog eyes
Perfected by dogs
But equally as effective
For us humans
If used right

Puppy dog eyes
The look that says
I love you
I’ll be by your side
I’ll miss you when you’re gone
The look that says
I’ll give you comfort when you’re stressed
You can rub my tummy anytime you want
The look that says I’ll be your most loyal friend
All I need from you in return
Is a little love
My food on time
And my daily walk

Puppy dog eyes
Are not pushy or harsh
They are gentle and mild
Meek and kind
And that’s why it’s hard to say no
To puppy dog eyes…
