A Minute To Miss Maxdog

We were saddened to learn that Maxdog had left his family today for a better place.  While we will certainly miss him and his unfailing grace, we know that the heartache must be much greater for his family.  I spent a lot of time today trying to think of adequate words to share to be a comfort to his family, but I felt myself coming up blank.  Words just aren't enough to capture the wonderful spirit that was Max.  He shared his grace with all of us and showed us that miracles do happen.  So, I'll just share a poem and say "thank you" to Max and his mom for all they've shared with us and taught us.  Our hearts go out to you!

A Minute To Miss You

I wish we had another minute
What I’d give for one more hour
Our time together was sweet
But it ended much too fast

I sit above your lovely bones
And stare at your epitaph
But I know you aren’t really here
Your spirit left behind this ash

An empty stone can hold your name
But it doesn’t hold your heart
Your soul soared to a better place
And left me here to mourn your loss

We used to be so comfortable
Sitting where we could just be
I never had to say a word
You knew what was inside of me

Now I wonder if I should have said
Things that echoed in my heart
Did you know the things that I felt
And the home you made for me

Sometimes I hear you in the wind
Or see your smile form in a cloud
But I wish I felt your presence here
Instead of an aching wound

I know the place to keep you
Is deep inside my heart
Where you first carved in your name
And left an eternal mark

Sometimes it’s easy to forget
To seek you where it matters most
For we will always be a pair
Even though we’re now apart
