There comes a time in one's life when words need to be put to rest - thoughts are still plentiful and always will be there - faith within oneself grows as the mind leads one to travel the right road - practice makes perfect if the right decisions are made and one truly believes Him and the laws laid before us...
The thought of fifteen comes painfully,
as if a stab in the heart from a memory
of an unfair justice, a choice not made of
me, a decision coming from a greater power,
an event that is not of my will.
Yesterday is so vivid, painfully real,
a reality that I never want to endure again,
before my eyes close for the final journey,
when I seek the peace and love from my God,
as He promised me from the beginning.
A single tear comes to my eye as I
remember you and then I weep for
you are no more, you I cannot touch,
you I cannot see or lovingly feel,
for you were taken away for a purpose.
The memory of you is vivid as I remember
the gentleness of your eyes, the sweetness
of your smile, remembering the softness
of your voice as you whispered,
“I love you, Mom”.
I cry tears of a Mother’s emptiness,
for my Sunshine was taken that day
you saw the bright light leading
you to wherever we take our journey,
wherever is His will, whatever is His plan -
knowing we shall embrace again.

like most Canine Members of the elite U.S. Navy SEALs,
is a Belgian Malinois. The Malinois breed is similar to
German Shepherds, but smaller and more compact
with an adult male weighing in the 30-kilo range.
