It was a trying day.
I sat down to decompress
And thoughts swirled about me
Like a tornado

Then you reached out again
With a loving touch

But again you reached out to me
And you were both gentle and strong.
The tornado of emotion passed me by.
There were no words,
Nor any sound at all between us,
But your touch restored me
And I met yours with my own,
Reminded of God’s love
By the affection of a greyhound . . .
Why can’t a servant of God
Run on four legs?
Today, one did.
