When did you enter my heart
It must have been subtle
Like the whiskers
On your snout long and thin
Hidden in the backdrop
Of your glossy silver hair
With your little schnauzer tail
Wagging like a fun meter
At a county fair
Hopping on two legs
Like an organ grinderís
Capuchin monkey
Begging for attention
Running hither and thither
Collapsing in Panting
Tongue drip exhaustion
With those glowing eyes
Of absolute love
Staring silent daggers
Into layers of heart
Untouched by the purity
Of unconditional love

When did you enter my heart
