| SOME ANGELS HAVE FUR
I always thought that angels have wings,
Are there to protect us from harmful things,
Were sent here by God to show us His love,
And hovered somewhere nearby, up above.
It came one day that I needed a friend.
I asked God, "Please, is there one You will send?"
He surely did answer when you showed up,
A warm, furry body: a black and tan pup!
Soulful eyes always watching my every move,
My love for you I did not have to prove.
Although some feared you because of your might,
In private I called you "my sweetness and light".
You walked with me for many years,
Were always there in times of tears.
Protected me when I needed it,
Gave all your love and never quit.
My faithful friend you will always be,
But nothing can keep us from destiny.
God gave you to me for a little while,
But now we must walk that final mile.
Memories of you I will always keep
In my heart of hearts so very deep.
I'll try to be brave: you'd want me to,
Go on with my life, there's things to do.
But one thing's for certain, of this I am sure,
God sent me an angel whose heart was so pure,
To watch over, protect me, and show me His love,
Who remains with me still, now with God up above.
In memory of Motley, my "sweetness and light"
dobe/dane girl who I was l privileged to share
my life with for 13 ˝ years.
