Wish You Were Here

There's a hush upon the world...
an overpowering silence

that cannot be broken.

For I will never see your face again

or hear your laughter fill the room

dancing eyes no more to cast their light

upon the darkest day.

I wish you were here...

how I wish you were here.

There's an empty place

no one can ever fill.

And from the depths of darkest night

only your light

could ever lead me home again.

Only your special grace

could fulfill the promise of the day.

I wish you were here...

how I wish you were here.

I turn amid the bustle of the day,

expecting to see you there.

A fleeting movement,

a glimpse of something familiar,

and my senses are flooded with you.

Shadows flicker in my memory

and slowly disappear.

I wish you were here...

how I wish you were here.

Hi Charles and all the fur kids! Hope you had a wonderful vacation. I know Cupcake and Xander were well taken care of while you were gone, but bet you are all so happy to see each other again. I'm sure it was hard to be away from them. Been very busy here with work. We are still having very wet and cool weather. Not so patiently waiting for warmer weather to arrive here LOL!! Sending big hugs to all. Gina, Saada and Juji

God must have known there would be times
We'd need a word of cheer

Someone to praise a triumph
Or brush away a tear.

He must have known we'd need to share
The joy of "little things"

In order to appreciate
The happiness life brings.

I think he knew our troubled hearts
Would sometimes throb with pain

At trials and misfortunes
Or some goals we can't attain.

He knew we'd need the comfort
Of an understanding heart

To give us strength and courage
To make a fresh, new start.

He knew we'd need companionship

And so God answered the heart's great need
With a Cherished you.

a quote for precious Sammy, Gabby, Bob M. & their dad

Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven,
Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, "Evangeline"

Sammy is quite the looker, handsome,
I can't believe that you're really gone now
Seems like it's all just a dream
How could it be that the world would go on
When something has died within me
Leaves will turn, my heart will burn
With colors of you
Snow will fall, but I'll recall your warmth
Summer wind, breathing in your memory
I'll miss you...

But there will be a time
When I'll see your face
And I'll hear your voice
And there we will laugh again
And there will come a day
When I'll hold you close
No more tears to cry
'Cause we'll have forever
So I'll wait....

I can't imagine my life without you
You held a place all your own
Just knowing that you were beneath the same sky
Oh what a joy I have known
On rainy days, in many ways
You water my heart
On starry nights I'll glimpse the light
Of your smile
Never far from my heart
You'll stay with me
And so I'll wait....

Until that time
When I see your face
And I hear your voice
And then we will laugh again
And on that day
I will hold you close
No more tears to cry
'Cause we'll have forever
But for now, I wait....

WELCOME BACK HOME CHARLES. I can just imagine the welcome you got from Cupcake and Xander.Which one knocked you off your feet or did the both of them do so. i know what you mean about getting caught up with things. I was only gone for three nights and two days but wow the back log on mail,telephone messages,etc. I didn't think i would ever get caught up.LOL. Anyway we had a great time and awesome turnout at Luke's shelter in honor of his Birthday. The weather was great for the time we were camping. We took my kids,Toby ,Tyson and JoJo with us so i didn't have to worry about them back home. LOL.

Sending hugs all around.

Looking up into the sky watching beauty passing by

Night of love is in the wind
Touch me with your heart again

Share with me your special love
As stars collide with beauty of
Special thoughts within my view
Captured in my heart for you

Peace I find when you are near
Hold me in your heart with care
Fill me with such rhapsodies
Your music fills my reveries

Night of love within the air
Love surrounds us everywhere
Touch the moon and stars above
This beauty is a thing called love.

I had to say good-bye today
To the dearest friend I've known
And no one understands like me
Why my heart feels so alone
By my side to comfort me
When I wasn't at my best
You even loved me when I'd shout
Stop being such a pest

I won't forget the games we played
Or your favorite place to sleep
The hardest part will be coming home
And you not there at my feet
Everyday that precious face
Filled my world with gentle love
Now you're with the
Angels up above

(Still) it's so hard to say good-bye
Like my shadow I could
Count on you to be there
So don't mind the tears that I cry
It may take a little while to
Remember you and smile
It's the selfish part of me that wants
You right here back with me
Yes right here by my side
It's so hard to say good -bye

There will be days I know,
As I learn to let go
The rain in my heart'll feel like a river
Then like a soft gentle wind,
From the warmth of a friend
Instead of tears
I'll remember you and smile

OOOOOOOPS that was me below. I forgot to sign my name. Maybe that is why it went to review. Sammy tell your Dad to go to Caliya's house and see what you all have been up to while he was away.Of course you did all this while still watching over him and Cupcake and Xander.

Sending Hugs all around.

Hi Sammy. Thankyou for your kind post to Mr. Lawrence and myself. You are very welcome. Mr. Lawrence has had many Pit Bulls in his life time and sees nothing but GOOD in your breed. He has worked  with many who have been trained to be mean by "humans" who should never be allowed to own any animal. I have personally witnessed many of these fur babies change their personality in just a few days after being shown nothing but love and what is and is not proper behavior. The problem with the bad rap your breed and others get is NOT with you furbabies,it is with the "humans" who raise them.  Mr. Lawrence has and always will be a voice for the PITBULL.And believe me is voice can be VERY loud.  just as your Dad will always be. Keep working with Luke and keep sending me signs where i need to be and i will surely be there. I have no choice but to believe that you and Luke keep sending me the signs as i have no other explanation as to why things happened as they did and to date we have saved and sheltered all 214 PitBulls that have come to Luke's shelter in need of forever loving homes which they have all found. Thankyou and KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK. We love you Sammy.

Beautiful Memories

A Bouquet of beautiful memories,
Sprayed with a million tears,
Wishing God could have spared you,
If just for a few more years.
We love you, we miss you and
We are proud to keep your dream and vision alive.
