there is a sad dog asleep at the side of my bed.
his name is four-lane because he was found on a highway.
i asked the family today, does he have a sense of humour or is he a serious dog?
he is a serious dog said they.
the last few years have been hard for him, the old man was oftimes impatient.
he did not love this serious dog, he is glad four-lane has gone away.
i saw the tears well up in this man's children's eyes,
i think they were tears of regret.
regret that this sad and serious dog must now make his life here at saints.
i wonder tonight as i watch him sleep, does he feel my questioning gaze?
does it occur to he who began this journey long ago on an empty highway somewhere...
that he will be everything in the world to me?
welcome to saints little lad, i will always be here watching and pondering you.
and one day, i will know the light now hidden inside of you......i promise, it's what i do.
