Dexter’s Day: Sadness and hope
My parents and their friends,
had a Very Sad Day, yesterday.
I was very concerned about them all,
So I made sure that I cuddled everyone
And sat on their knees
And gave them my ”happy face”
And let them rub my tummy
Just to help them feel a little comfort.
We were all sitting with Charli
Though she was in the screen
And as she was saying ”goodbye” to Red
We were sending her love – and remembering Red too.
The thing about human sadness is that it’s an energy
With a dark colour
But it is speckled with gold
Which are flakes of love, mixed up with hope
And wrapped up in comfort.
I don’t think humans can see this
But dogs can – so I wagged my tail hard
To make the ”love speckles” go everywhere
And wished the sadness to be kind-
And I understand it will stay around for a very long time.
Love is a funny thing!
It’s a Bright energy: like a rainbow
And it’s EVERYWHERE
But , because it’s made up of so many colours,
It holds all of the energies within it,
From pain to sadness, joy to hope-
But they all make the colour of Love shine brightly
Always and everywhere – and even sadness cannot take it away.
I was ”thinking” to Mummy yesterday and again today,
Do people know that Love is there?
She thought, ”yes” but her heart told me that it’s so very hard to lose someone you love….
I’m not going to lose anyone:
I will make sure that I find them and hold their Love in my soul
And wag my tail so that Love can be felt EVERYWHERE!
Dogs understand stuff.
We aren’t here for long But we know stuff.
Like Love never leaves us – and can help keep us strong
And memories carry Love energy
For us all to lean upon .
Charli can lean on me on the days her Memories hide
Or hurt too much to unwrap.
Then, when she is a little stronger,
