Come and Bring Your Dog

On Sunday’s I’m posting poetry written by my mother-in-law, Bettie Lou. Writing poetry was a form of therapy after losing her husband and then her youngest son in 1985.

Come and Bring Your Dog

Come and bring your dog

            But not your past

I told you that I love you.

What more do you need?

Bring your dog

            Not your fears

Reach out in love

            Without fear of rejection.

We don’t own love

In giving love, we share it.

Let’s go for it!

            An experience of love, joy, and hope.
