A Puppies Love.

A Puppies Love.


We bought a puppy to surprise,
and brighten up her sad blue eyes,
when she had just turned 9 years young,
after her cancer had begun.

A spark of life, a furry friend,
some comfort till she reached her end,
her eyes lit up when she saw him,
then they commenced to cuddling.

She called him "Hope" ...and he truly was,
her way to cope each day because,
her treatments laid her soul to waste,
until she saw his furry face.

Why did God choose to take our babe,
at such a young and tender age,
he holds the book of life and death,
and turns each page,
his reasoning was not mine to guage,
perhaps her dreams he'd bookmarked there,
went far beyond what earth could share,
But as an angel she find joy beyond compare,
on heaven's distant shores somewhere.

One doctor told us, "There's no hope,"
but she just smiled and told him..."Nope...
I've got the best "Hope" any kid has ever known,
waiting for me when I get home."

Months passed us by, and her hair thinned,
but she just looked at us and grinned,
she said, I still have Hope,
I'll brush his hair each day,
Mine will grow back, I'll be O.K.

Why did God choose to take our babe,
at such a young and tender age,
he holds the book of life and death,
and turns each page,
his reasoning was not mine to guage,
perhaps her dreams he'd bookmarked there,
went far beyond what earth could share,
But as an angel she find joy beyond compare,
on heaven's distant shores somewhere.

One Summer day we took her in
for scheduled tests with her physician,
his face was shocked at her condition,
We thought it'd be her last admission.

But then he smiled with recognition,
at something he had rarely seen...
and said "Your daughter's in remission,"
her cancer screening came up clean.

I've never danced
inside a hospital before
but I was Fred Astaire
quick stepping cross that floor,
sweeping my little girl
from her chair into the air,
back in my arms forevermore.

But all my choreography
so full of bliss...
could not compare to her
first, healthy puppy kiss,
they leaped and rolled and
laughed across the yard that day,
as death at long last crept away.
