he'd waited at the gate all day for us
though he was old and never left the house
standing tall with the wind in his fur
like he was young again, a teenager

and from our first surprise, soon we went quiet
'cause we saw his face… and we saw his eyes
and we ran to him like the silver screen
and before he fell, he leapt --- into our greeting

and looking up, with tiny breaths, he was old again
and then we saw what he waited for
and our faces crumbled

given me in a box when I was three
and we all bent down, kissed his kind old head and talked a bit
and he fell quiet not long after that

no I'll never never go, no I'll never never go
no I'll never never go, no I'll never let you go
