A Little Dog Angel

High up in the courts of heaven today

a little dog angel waits;

with the other angels she will not play,

but she sits alone at the gates.

"For I know my daddy will come" says she,

"and when he comes he will call for me."

The other angels pass her by

As they hurry toward the throne,

And she watches them with a wistful eye

as she sits at the gates alone.

"But I know if I just wait patiently

that someday my daddy will call for me."

And her daddy, down on earth below,

as he sits in his comfy chair,

forgets sometimes, and whispers low

to the little girl who is not there.

And the little dog angel cocks her ears

and dreams that her daddy's voice she hears.

And when at last her daddy waits

outside in the dark and cold,

for the hand of death to open the door,

that leads to those courts of gold,

he will hear a sound through the gathering dark,

a little dog angel's muffled bark.


With heavy hearts; and a tear in our eyes

after all these years; we must say goodbye

Please understand; we've done all we could

if there was anything we could do; you know we would

I'm sitting right here; gently rub your ears

while I talk to you softly; trying to hold back the tears

The memories you gave us; we'll never forget

especially the ones; of the day we all met

One last hug; and one last kiss

you have no idea; how much you'll be missed

To look into your eyes; this one last time

you tell me it's ok; you know it's your time

Close your eyes now; and go to sleep

we'll pray to the Lord; you're soul he'll keep

Go in peace now; our good friend

we'll stay right here with you; until the end

Dream of that special day and time

when we'll meet at the Bridge; and all will be fine

We'll run and play; side by side

with a soft warm feeling; deep down inside

Your memory will live on; in each one of us

you'll always be number 1; to all of us

Have a safe journey; through the night

I promise when you awake; you'll be in God's light

So with heavy hearts; and tears in our eyes

just for now my boosie; we say goodbye….
