Echoes of Love
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 7-24-2015

I had a dog once, or he had me
We went everywhere, together, there was to be
I threw a ball well, he could retrieve
Sometimes I'd follow and he'd take the lead
We both were learning and we both had something to teach

He watched me grow up and I saw him slow up
And that ain't the worst of it all
I saw him lay down and the last time he stayed down
After standing so tall
He was my hero and even a hero must fall

--- Chorus ---
I hear his voice in the cracks and the corners
I sense his presence above
I close my eyes and I see him everywhere
But when they're open, he's not there
My wishful thinking
Or maybe the echoes of love
It's just like the sunlight, twinkling so bright
In the middle of the night
It comes on a moonbeam, straight into your dream
Yeah, that happens in this life
When you touch a spirit and everything's just right

Now, it may be a lover, a sister or brother
Someone you helped along the way
They're going to know you and they're going to show you
The value of each day
Then they'll have to move on
And you're going to wish they could stay

-Repeat Chorus-
You know they touched you and you must have touched them back
On a good day, you can't ask for more than that, no more than that

-Repeat Chorus-
