For Big Spook
by Guila Manchester
I hope you knew how very much I loved you.
I can't help wishing God had let you stay.
And yet the steadfast love and trust you gave me
Is something time can never take away.
And when I see a tail that won't stop wagging
I'll know within that shaggy body, too,
Will be a heart that holds your kind of loving
And I'll reach out with love, remembering you.
