The knock on the door was at an unearthly hour,
Was it someone I knew or someone asking for the bar,
I peeped out of the window to see who it was,
But no one could I see till far.
The skies were dark and the winds blew strong,
My heart was beating fast,
No one had visited me since long.
There was fear and excitement as I waited for the knock again,
And there it was , the knock at last.
As I opened the door, no one was there,
Was it a ghost or the wind giving me a scare,
Hiding in the shadows,was a small dog
He was whimpering and sad,
Shivering in the fog,
I let him inside my house,
And he became a part of my life,
Into a beautiful journey we entered together,
Gone was my sadness I was again alive.
