A very special thank you to Mary Tootle for writting such a beautiful poem.
The sun came up this morning,
The same as yesterday.
Even though you thought it wouldn't,
When he breathed his last that day.
Even if you don't feel like smiling,
Or even brushing your hair,
You try not to think about tomorrow,
Or accept he's no longer there.
Your world has lost its center,
Your candle has lost its flame,
Your lives go on without him,
You'll still call out his name.
You'll never forget his laughter,
Or his happy teddy bear hugs.
Your lives were made richer,
By the warmth of his great love.
Thank God for the gift of Angels,
And when you hear a little sigh,
Glance quickly around a little,
Maybe Max came by just to say "hi"!
