Will the Circle Be Unbroken?

A Tribute to my Dog Teddy

He was a rescue dog who rescued me, giving me ten years of love and companionship,

Greeting me whenever I came home

Following me with his all-seeing lazy eye, promising mischief

Bringing me joy with his favorite game “Get the Teddy”

Leading the way on walks around the neighborhood with his blind friend Poppy close behind

Grounding me with his comforting presence,

Lying quietly at my feet or curling up in the nearest guitar case as I played and sang

I like to imagine him running free in an endless field of flowers, maybe pausing

to listen to a faraway sound, a gentle reminder of the place he once knew as his

forever home.

As long as he’s in my heart, the circle will be unbroken.
