Could Be Anywhere...
A NEVER ENDING LOVE
Puttering about the house this morn
a honey do here and a honey do there.
Found a worn out, chewed up, old piece of suede leather.
My son's dog knew it before I did
he danced and sang in circles, crying,
"Don't you remember?"
first memories, then awe, then tears, then love.
Carefully folding the tattered leather
putting my finger through the holes
smelling the boy and his left behind dog.
It seemed there were tears in the dogs eyes
as he looked up to me for answers
answers I, in turn,
look to Heaven to dispense.
My son's dog and I found their toy this morn
oh how they loved to play tug,
hide and seek, and chase
my son's dog would growl and growl,
and my son would laugh.
Oh God in Heaven, how I miss his laugh
I laid the leather in my son's dog's bed
with his cardboard and old blankets,
now there is comfort.
My son's dog can sleep with my son once again.....
thank you God for the love,
the love that keeps us on...
the love that my son's dog holds in his heart.
thank you, dear Father, for that leather
for Your sweet, sweet, never ending love
Your love that knows the loss of a Son.....
