LEND ME A PUP
I will lend you for awhile, a newfie pup, god said,for you to loveher while she lives,
and mourn her once she's dead. maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or may be two or three, but will you till i call her back,
take care of her for me. she'll bring her charms to gladden you, but should her stay be brief, you'll always have her
memories as solace for your grief.i can not promise that she'll stay, since all from earth return, but there are lessons taught
below i want this pup to learn. i've lookedthe whole world over in search of teachers true, and from the folk that crowds
life's land, well i've choosen you. now will you give her all your love nor think the labour vain nor hate me when i come
to take my newfie back again. the risk of grief we will run, we'll shelter her with tenderness, we'll love her while we may,
and for the happiness we have known will forever grateful stay.but should you call her back, much sooner than we planned,
we'll brave the bitter grief and try to understand. by our love we've managed your wishes to achieve, in memory of her we
loved will help us while we grieve."thank you lord"
