I have written over 4,000 poems and 1,000 songs and yet I am still searching for that perfect poem or song which eludes me.
A Puppy Called "Hope."
A Heart Touching Story
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 yes he 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 fateful page, his reasoning's not mine to guage, perhaps her dreams he'd bookmarked there, went far beyond what earth could share, But as an angel she would find sweet 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 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, while telling us " I still have Hope, I'll brush his lovely hair each day Mine will grow back, I'll be O.K." One Summer day we took her in for tests with her sad physician, who grew stunned at her condition like a man who'd failed on his mission 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 ever danced inside a hospital before but I moved that day like Fred Astaire quick stepping all across that floor, sweeping my child from her wheelchair swinging her high into the air then back to my arms evermore But all my choreography so full of glee and bliss... could not ever compare to her first, healthy puppy kiss, they leaped and rolled and laughed and ran across the yard that day, My child with hope went back to play and death at long last crept away.
