A Dog Named Grey: A Love Story With Fur
When you stay on the lookout for love in life
You begin to see shades of love show up
Dance on the horizon
Hoisted up on the crow’s nest
Three-hundred and sixty five degrees
Of love on the line
Sail into view in the folds of skin, flesh and fur
Wrapped in a lean package
Of muscle and sinew
Scars and heart
These eyes of a light gray soul and a rugged man
Tell a love story
Fragile and strong, a paradox
File the sharp edges
Of a jaded heart to see
You can take measurements of
In many ways
I know the heart of the man
Mission work called us to go
A thousand miles
You can measure a man’s
Character and heart in service
Sacred everyday acts
Simply tell a life story of loving
Best of all, so
Watch a man love his dog
The one who father’s not a child
But loves the furry child deep and wide
And stewards well the heart
Of one whose silhouette is shades of gray.
Then soak in every minute detail of the care
Invested in the one
Best friend of this man
Perfect specimen of man’s best friend.
Love explodes in the hearts of those
Whose love goes places
It is welcome
Friendships and the lives of men.
Poured out fully into
Charity and love
Tending the hearts of the church’s children
The community’s poor in need of a leg up
And into the life of a dog named Grey.
