An Ode to Deto
“He holds the key to my heart,
He is the wings to my soul,
I turned away at the start,
Then he took my breath away whole.
I can’t dream to be apart,
As his soft whinnies turn a lul,
He won over my broken heart,
without taking any toll.
I vowed to never let us part,
I vowed never to let it dull,
Two feet once carried my heavy heart,
But now four have healed my soul.”
