Here’s a sweet, tear-jerker of a song, written from the perspective of a pet (I think a dog, but there are cats in this video, too) to his/her person. It’s called “From Ella.” It’s a lovely tune, with killer lyrics, written and performed by Allison Morgan – a talented artist who clearly knows the heart of dogs.

If you really listen to the words, you’ll want to have a Kleenex handy toward the end, when the tables are turned from the first part of the song. I’ve included the lyrics to the first part of “From Ella” below.

I will lay at your feet, listen to you breathe,

‘Til the daybreak comes I will wait.

When you walk out the door,

I will be waiting, praying for you to come home.

And I’ll love you,

‘Til time breaks away,

When your hair’s turning grey,

I will be there.

When you’re crying,

I will kiss all the tears,

Push away all the fears

And when night comes again, I will wait,

And I’ll love you…

If you listen to it enough, you will find yourself singing snippets to your dog, as I did to Jake last night. I didn’t sound nearly as good as Allison Morgan, but he appeared to appreciate the attempt — at least he didn’t get up and walk away…
