Let me wallow in my sadness, for I've lost my one true love,
And I do feel that I cannot go on, without my angel dove,
She was a spirit oh so heavenly, she loved me just for me,
There's not a human on this earth, that made me feel so blessed and free.
So let me shed the tears, I need to cleanse the hurt that chokes my heart,
For I just cannot bear the thought that we will always be apart,
Her spirit follows me where e'er I go and still I call her name,
Please help me, for I fear forever, I will feel this aching pain.
I want to hide my thoughts from others, I don't think they understand,
They whisper when they see me crying, as I walked this sullen land,
I try to smile and think of good times, but the sadness overtakes,
And once again the tears begin to flow, just like the giant lakes.
And then one day while I am walking on the path we used to take,
My eyes they meet a little fellow, eager for a friend to make,
He barks at me to pick him up, a woman comes towards the fence,
She smiles and tells me it was meant to be, my pain she seems to sense.
And then the puppy licks my hand and soon before I've time to think,
A smile begins to purse my lips and darkened thoughts begin to sink,
You can't replace the one you've lost, but I have found a friend to soothe,
That needs me just as much as Misty did, I'm sure she would approve.
