'Why God Gave Me My Wonderful Boo'

by Dianna Petrytus
(Litchfield Park, AZ)

God gave us our pets.

Gerbils, hamsters, dogs cats and an occasional egret.

God gave us our pets, to teach us humanity,

When we couldn’t even stand the person standing next to us because they were different.

God gave us our pets, to teach us a beautiful and bountiful love,

When we humans won’t even touch each other to give someone a hug.

God gave us our blessings in the form of our two and four legged babies.

To the boa constrictor who slithers on his owners arm, to the service dog,

Who serves as someone’s who has special needs.

God gave us our pets to teach us to love,

Someone to hold onto and give a hug when no one would.

God gave us our pets to teach us that they are all different and it doesn’t matter.

What color, race, breed or family creed they come from.

God gave us our pets to teach us humanity.

God gave me my blue eyed boy Buddy, to teach me that I can be myself,

Without being selfish and to not judge someone just because they are different.

God gave me Buddy to teach me to get an extra breakfast sandwich to give to someone who might not have a meal,

God gave me Buddy to remember to always keep it real.

God bless you my blue eyed boy, remember the joy,

At the bridge we will meet, with kisses so sweet and tears of great joy.

God gave me Buddy to teach me about life.

It's three years today that I lost my beautiful blue eyed boy, and I miss him more and more every day.
May God and the Angels keep you safe until we meet
at heavens gate.

I love you my boy, love you, love you, love you.

Love your earthbound Mom,
