|Mad Love to you Olivia. I'm forever in your corner!!!|
Somewhere within my journeys
I have heard others say
That time heals everything
And that love can take madness away.
They say it’s because there are reasons
A purpose under Heaven for all things.
But there are days when time simply cannot heal
All the pain that this world can bring.
Like anything else within this life,
There will always be things that are terribly unfair.
But in those times you must always know,
That you are loved and that we care.
Never allow the evil of ill times,
To break your spirit of all it can be
For it is during these moments that you should believe
That only faith will set you free.
There will be times when you may feel like giving up
And that all the hope you once had has gone,
But in those times, always know that we are here
To help you carry on.
So during those days when you are broken
And you feel that your heart cannot take the pain,
We lend you our shoulders and carry you through.
Until you are strong enough to walk on your own, again.
No matter how it may seem,
Always know that we are with you each step of the way
So never be afraid, always be strong
Because we pray for Olivia’s recovery and all of you each day.
* Especially written and dedicated to: Gloria, Sam, Gabrielle and Olivia Santarelli *
Olivia, you are always in my prayers, Sweetheart. You will make it through this. Keep strong, baby girl!!! Below is a special "Puppy Poem" just for you. I love you!!!
A Puppy Poem
I love it when it’s time to sleep.
Cuz Olivia’s bed is so soft and deep.
I always sleep right beside her, in the centre groove.
So that she keeps me safe and can hardly move.
Because of how I sleep across her,
I trap her legs, so she’s snuggled in tight.
And this is how we fall asleep together each and every night.
No one can disturbs us or dares intrude
Until it’s morning time when Olivia and I are hungry
And we want some food.
Usually I am the one who is hungry first,
So I will sneak up to Olivia slowly and I begin.
I bark softly and then I start to lick her,
First her arm, then her chin.
She wakes up slowly, rubbing her eyes
Laughing and giggling, she looks at me and cries
I know you’re awake you silly thing,
Give me 5 more minutes
And then our day can begin.
But the morning sun is here and I’m awake,
It’s time to play, I cannot sleep anymore.
Olivia please wake up for goodness sake!
So I continue on and she finally gives in,
She says I’m cute and that is why I get my way.
So I help her get dressed so we can play.
Thank you Lord, for giving me,
This human little girl, named Olivia that I can see.
The one who hugs and holds me tight,
And allows me to share her bed with me at night.
