On this Easter morning, I want him back. I miss him terribly. But I can't. So I go back to his life and ask myself, if he was the dog of my life, was I worthy of his devotion?
And so the lesson that he still teaches me resonates this Easter morning. All that I know will die. As will I. In my life, knowing that this is all that there is, do I pay attention to to what really matters? Do I pay enought attention to the people that are close to me? Do I pay enough attention to what matters to them? Do I pay enough attention to myself? Do I live the life that I have the privelege of having?
Maybe there is a Rainbow Bridge? Maybe there is an after life? But I can never know this in my life. This life and those I love are all that I can know now.
But I still long for him. If I was to spend eternity with another being it would be with him.
