A boy and his dog

A boy and his dog. :)
What can bring a smile
when his world has fallen apart
When the hurts of this world overwhelm him
When death has touched his very heart
What comfort can a boy find
when schoolwork piles high
when sadness plagues his every thought
when all he wants to do is cry
When Mom has chores for him to do
but his heart screams, "I don't care!"
I saw my brother die before me?
I dont want to even push in my chair
So up he goes to his room with the door slammed closed
mixed feelings running through his head
he feels a gentle wet nose on his face
as he lays hurting on his bed
Little stinky black pug?
with big bulging eyes
with silly snorting noises
and soft little sighs?
How can he not smile
when you snuggle against him
when you lick his nose
and you bite at his toes
Good feelings fill his heart with hope
he has a true companion and friend
His face is smiling and he can go on
thanks to the attentinons of a little black dog

That is a picture to keep forever. What a warm mug... (both of them :D) so handsome the boy and his pooch. There are times when nothing can soothe our heart like our wordless animal friends. They make it all better. Love and hugs to you Micah - and the other sweet kids as well J & L xoxo
