...It's really been a year today??
Lend Me A Puppy
“I will lend to you for awhile a puppy,” God said,
“For you to love when she lives and to mourn when he’s dead.
Maybe for twelve or thirteen years, maybe for two or three,
However, will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?
He’ll bring his charms to gladden you and should his stay be brief,
You’ll always have his memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return.
But there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn.
I’ve looked the whole world over in search for teachers true
And from the folk that crowd life’s land, I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain?
Nor hate me when I come to take my dog back home again?
He fancied that he heard us say “Dear Lord, Thy will be done,
For all the joys this dog will bring, the risk of grief we’ll run.
We’ll shelter him with tenderness; we’ll love him while we may
And for the happiness we’ve known, forever-grateful stay.
But should You call him back to You much sooner than we’ve planned,
We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.
If by our love we’ve managed Your wishes to achieve
In memory of him we loved, please help us while we grieve.
When our faithful bundle departs this world of strife,
We’ll get yet another dog and love him all his life.”
No longer at my side but FOREVER in my heart.
We miss and love you always lil Brody.
Dee and Lil' Louie
RIP Lil' Brody boy 6.7.99 - 1.3.10
