DID HE FOLLOW ME?

DID HE FOLLOW ME?
It's been a year since I moved,
How I missed my squirrels and birds,
Today I saw a lonely squirrel,
Did he follow me? quite absurd.
 
He was in the tree opposite my apartment,
Looking towards where I live.
I immediately crushed some cookies,
Across the road I went, to him to give.
 
This has cheered my week-end,
Knowing that there is wildlife around.
I will have to keep my eyes open,
So I can put crushed cookies on the ground.
 
Somehow I don't feel so lonely,
You must think me sad.....perhaps I am.
But no-one knows the heartache I've endured,
I've felt like a lonely, lonely lost lamb.
