How long I counted my steps along the bank I can’t recall

But when my breath was measured counting on the in and out

He was beside me -eyes sweeping the beach scene

Here again- creature that you are-

And off he went not once interrupting my counting breath

Only I missed him instantly and when I reached the wall- 10,000 steps- I turned pushed off the brick

And made the long walk back.

I started my car- he breathed in the first lyrics cooed a chorus

Counted the miles home

I turned off the engine

Looked back at his whistling figure kicking stones

He’s always making sure I get home
