    DefaultSeamus has crossed

    last night. After a bitter battle with cancer. He was only 6 1/2 years old.

    Lend Me a Pup

    I will lend to you for awhile
    a puppy, God said,
    For you to love him while he lives
    and to mourn for him when he is gone.
    Maybe for 12 or 14 years,
    or maybe for 2 or 3
    But will you, till I call him back
    take care of him for me?

    He’ll bring his charms to gladden you
    and (should his stay be brief)
    you’ll always have his memories
    as solace for your grief.
    I cannot promise that he will stay
    since all from Earth return,
    But there are lessons taught below
    I want this pup to learn.

    I’ve looked the whole world over
    in seach of teachers true
    And from the fold that crowd life’s land
    I have chosen you.
    Now will you give him all your love
    Nor think the labor vain,
    nor hate me when I come to take my pup back again?

    I fancied that I heard them say,
    “Dear Lord, They Will Be Done,”
    For all the joys this pup will bring
    the risk of grief you’ll run.
    Will you shelter him with tenderness,
    Will you love him while you may?
    And for the happiness you’ll know forever grateful stay.

    But should I call him back
    much sooner than you’ve planned,
    please brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.
    If, by your love, you’ve managed
    my wishes to achieve,
    In memory of him that you’ve loved,
    cherish every moment with your faithful bundle, and know he loved you too.

    It is devastating news, Nancy. My heart goes out to you in a way I cannot describe. :'(
    My Seamus was named after your Seamus. I'll ask him to carry the torch...
