On a clear day, I can see forever in the skies above me.
I have seen the love as soft eyes gazed gently into mine,
I have known love on four legs, more so than ever I have two.
I have had the pleasure of time that stands still in my mind.
I have shared the silver of the teardrops as they fell,
I have heard the words of others in much pain.
There have been things I know left unsaid as time heals,
But I have sensed those teardrops fall like rain.
It is known the pain of words written for this heart that hurts,
And words fill the gap that time has not yet felt the need to erase,
You too have words that you too have yet to speak or write,
About the great hurt of the tears that you wet upon your face.
So let we who care share your pain with you my friends,
Let not ever the glory of the rainbows shine be for naught.
One day more shall we rise to smell the beauty of the rose.
And once more in the web of great love shall we be caught.
Yes you have known the glory of the sunrise as it burst upon the land,
And seen it slowly drift across the meadow gently kissed with dew.
You have felt its warming rays spread and warm your very soul,
And you have known the love of four legs, just as you have two.
You know this life as it stands is not without its grief,
So Live on this life that you know you must fulfill,
Until that day that you are called upon to go,
And you will see the sunlight shine again upon your sill.
