Lend Me A Pup

I will lend to you for a while, a English Springer Spaniel pup, God Said
For you to love her while she lives and mourn for her when she is
dead.  Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three days.

But will you, 'till I call her back, take care of her for me.

She'll bring her charms to gladden you and (should her day be brief) you'll always have her memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise she will stay, since all from earth return
But there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn.

I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true
And from the folk that crowds life's land I hand chosen you.

Now will you give her all your love not think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come to take my dog back again.

I fancied that I heard them say " Dear Lord Thy Will Be Done",
For all the joys this spring day will bring, the risk of grief we'll run
We'll shelter her with tenderness we'll love her while we may,
And for the happiness we've known forever grateful stay
But should you call her back much sooner the we've planned
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand,
If, by our love, we've managed, your wishes to achieve
In memory of her we loved, to help us while we grieve,
When our faithful bundle departs this world a strife,
We'll have yet another springer and love her all her life.
