Sitting on the floor of the urgent care veterinary clinic

The boy

now man

Sat with his boy

Now old man


I never knew

Or maybe I did but never really understood

How you could bleed out

Without anyone knowing

Because it was all inside

But isn’t that the way with every broken heart?


The good news is:

Blood clots

Hearts mend

Medical science is salvatory

And Grace exists in this world.


We may be designed to wear out

But we are also designed to heal

With a little help from our friends.
