LOVE TRAVELS A DISTANCE

LOVE TRAVELS A DISTANCE

A boy and his dog, love between two,

Each day he waits at the stroke of four.

Soon they will be separated by circumstance,

Strength and courage will be tested, a faithful friend.

A boy cries in the night, a tear from a dog’s eye,

Love travels a distance to see the smile on a face that cries.

Hundreds of miles traveled, across land and time,

Across a river swam, to the other side, love in a dog’s eyes.

He’ll meet many on the way, conquer with every stride,

Back home a boy waits, a prayer and wish in the night.

Struggles and pain, hunger or cold will not stop mans best friend,

Something so strong lives within this four legged friend.

At the stroke of four he lies in wait,

Love travels a distance, together again.
