Un Chien Abandonne

My heart is like a dog that's left
Behind the gate, but still attached.
The dog will be picked up again.
You will not come back for my heart

Though Time will pass, and birds will fly
And clouds will dance upon the sky.
Yes, Time will pass, but of no use.
My hungry heart will still refuse

To go away, to leave this gate,
It still will love you, still will wait
Where you had left it long ago,
And it's the saddest thing I know.
