A Loan From God
God promised at the birth of time, A special friend to give, His time on earth is short, He said, So love him while he lives.
It may be for eight or ten years, Or only two or three, But will you, till I call him back, Take care of him for Me?
A wagging tail and cold wet nose, And silken velvet ears, A heart as big as all outdoors, To love you through the years.
His puppy ways will gladden you, And antics bring a smile, As guardian or friend he will, Be loyal all the while.
He’ll bring his charms to grace your life, And though his stay be brief, When he’s gone the memories, Are solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, Since all from earth return, But lessons only a dog can teach, I want you each to learn.
I’ve looked the whole world over, In search of guardians true, And from the folk that crowd life’s land, I have chosen you.
