A Gift of Paws

pawrul1a.gif (939 bytes)

In the silent Christmas morning
my heart begins to ache
as feelings from the day you left
dawn slowly with daybreak.

I say a prayer of grateful thanks
for the life that I've been blessed
and ask for strength so that I might
through pain, find happiness.

God sent you as a present
though not received on Christmas day,
a gift of paws that reached down deep
and stole my heart away.

Tears are part of healing,
each one shed will ease the pain,
so that memories will come to mind
in a most dynamic, ardent way.

I doubt that you would want me
to spend this day in tears.
I know you'd rather see me smile
as from atop a cloud you peer.

Though a time or two I've lost my way
since the Keeper called you Home,
now faith restored by angel paws
will never come undone.

A loving aura fills the sky
as you rest on clouds of fleece,
and angels gently tuck you in,
may you sleep in heavenly peace.
