Mog's World


Animals never belong to us, they pass through our lives
on journeys of their own.
They ask no more of us than
that we love them
and then let them go on in dignity and peace.

Animals come and go
with lessons to learn and lessons to teach.
So, we love them and learn.
We accept the pain of their going
as we received the joy of their coming.
All of it is a blessing.
