Sitting on the floor of the urgent care veterinary clinic
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:
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.
