tomi on a visit

her gnarled and curled hand

wrapped around his soft ear,

as his chin rested on her crochet covered lap.

“I know You will be there,”

she whispered to the Poodle.

“I know there will be dogs in heaven”


Looking me straight in the eye she said,

“Why would God let you fall in love so deeply with someone,

then deny you their company for all eternity?”

Some moments are forever.
