…because even though Samantha refused to smile,
we would still like, with great enthusiasm,
to wish you a wonderfully warm
lovingly fuzzy Sunday.
Though through tears we may grieve,
with regrets we may mourn,
until the day dawns
and the shadows flee away,
Your grace will always be sufficient.
…because sometimes, even when one has a houseful of animals…
if one of them is not a poofy feline named Samantha…
something still feels like it’s missing.
(p.s. Sorry Samantha…but you weren’t born yet at the time of this photo session…)
Present in the photo:
Pepper the dalmatian
Mickey the kitty
Moses the cockatiel
Puppydoc the human perch
Heed the echos of a heartache,
anguished sear of reverie.
Feel its scalp bleed down her face,
scathing tears of memories.
See the eyes that once freely smiled
fading with defeat.
As silent fields in which she lies
drift away with night’s conceit.
…because it’s okay to want to stay snuggled
under a comforter once in a while.
But I hope you won’t forget us,
nor the other kids at the children’s homes,
but that you will keep us in your thoughts and prayers
as we continue on this journey called life.
Puppydoc wishes you a lovely Heart Day
full of chocolate cuddles and corny chuckles…
