    "CINNAMON"

    ONE DAY SHE APPEARED, BECOME THE LOVE OF MY LIFE,
    THREE YEARS WORTH OF LOVING,,,,WE WERE CUT LIKE A KNIFE!

    ONE FATAL CAR WRECK,,MY WORLD RIPPED ALL APART,
    SHE EJECTED FROM WRECKAGE, ALONG WITH MY HEART.
    SO NOW SHE'S STILL WONDERING WHERE MAMA HAD WENT
    I PRAY SHE REMEMBERS, THE LIFE THAT WE'VE SPENT.

    SHE WAS ONLY FIVE WEEKS, WHEN SHE'D LAY ON MY ARM,
     FEELING SAFE AND PROTECTED, AND BLOCKED FROM ALL HARM.
    IT'S BEEN OVER A MONTH,BUT SEEMS MORE LIKE A YEAR,
     I FEEL HER CONFUSION, HER SADNESS, AND FEAR.

    WILL SHE KNOW HOW I LOVE HER? AND EACH DAY THAT I CRY?
    DOES SHE FEEL I JUST DUMPED HER? OR LEFT HER TO DIE?
    TO THINK THAT'S SHE'S HURT,OR GOING THROUGH PAIN,
    "MY GOD!" CAN I STAND THIS? OR JUST GO INSANE!

    I RAISED HER, I TAUGHT HER, I TRAINED HER SO WELL,
    WILL I RID ALL THIS SORROW? HOW LONG WILL I DWELL!!

    NOW I'M BLESSED WITH  THIS "ANGEL",HE'S TAKEN HER PLACE,
    HE'S A SHEPARD, NOT BOXER, IN HIS EYES THERE'S NO TRACE.
    NOW TRAINING HIM TOO, AS TO GAURD AND PROTECT,
    AINT IT FUNNY HOW ANIMALS CAN TAKE SUCH AFFECT?

    IN MY HEART I STILL WONDER, WILL SHE EVER COME HOME?
    WILL THAT FAMILY PROTECT HER? AND NOT LET HER ROAM?
    I FEEL "THE LORD" SENT THIS PUPPY FROM HEAVEN ABOVE,
    HE CAN TAKE UP MY TIME, BUT CAN I GIVE ALL MY LOVE?

    YOU CAN'T JUST REPLACE SOMEONE DEAR TO YOUR HEART,
    AND AS CLOSE AS WE WERE,,,,,,,,,I FEEL RIPPED ALL APART!
    "NOW LORD" I'M NOT SAYING "NO THANKS" FOR YOUR GIFT,
    JUST HAVE TO START OVER,MAYBE GRIEVING WILL LIFT.

    I'M AFRAID TO COMMIT, IN CASE SOMETHING GOES WRONG!
    I WATCH HIM EACH DAY, AND MY NIGHTS ARE SO LONG!
    I TRY NOT TO SLEEP,I SUBCONTIOUSLY FEAR,
    THAT IF MY EYES ARE NOT ON HIM, HE'LL JUST DISAPPEAR!

    I'M STILL HAVING NIGHTMARES OF THAT HORRIBLE CRASH,
    SO MUCH LOVE AND COMPASSION, JUST GONE IN A FLASH.
    NOW THE "LORD" HAS HIS REASONS TO SPARE ME THAT TIME,
    HE KNOWS THROUGH MY WORDS, I'LL SPREAD HIS GLORY IN RYHME.

    I PRAY EVERY DAY, FOR THE BLESSINGS HE GIVES,
    AND I CAN'T HELP BUT TO ADD,,,,,,,,THAT MY "CINNAMON" STILL LIVES........
