More Than Man's Best Friend

Rain beat down on the rooftop.
Sirens howled on the gusts outside.
I couldn’t get hold of anyone,
No matter how hard I tried.

A tree must have fallen on wires,
And maybe the phone lines, as well.
I couldn’t call for help, though I needed it.
It was dark in the house, and I fell.

But my loyal companions surrounded me.
They could sense there was something amiss.
Their huge, floppy tongues started to drown me
With their version of a loving kiss.

“Go away!” I shouted in annoyance.
“This is no time to be showing your love.”
Then they stopped and looked at me calmly,
And they gave my right arm a big shove.

Then I realized what my friends were doing.
They were trying to prod me on.
Over to the door they led me,
As if I was naught but their pawn.

I was skeptical at first, of course,
As I looked down the stairs into dark.
Could I make it down there on my own?
My oldest dog gave a short bark.

“Trust me,” he seemed to be saying.
“Trust us. We both understand.”
I leaned forward slowly and lingered,
Then I cupped his head in my hand.

I inched ever closer to safety.
The dogs surrounded on each side.
The pain coursed through every nerve
Until I wished I just would have died.

With their noses prodding me forward,
Their bodies pushing obstacles away,
I made it to the bottom of the stairs.
I was determined to live one more day.

Some people say dogs aren’t that smart.
Some say they cause nothing but strife.
But I know this is not true in the least.
My dogs helped me save my own life.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
