Dear God....

Dear God,

If You could only spare the time To let my pet lie down beside Your feet, If You could pat his head and let him in Or send an angel to the gate to meet him When he comes, lost and forlorn; If you could help in any way, I would be glad For he had never been alone until today, And even in Heaven, I know he will be sad Without my voice to chase his fears away. He'll miss our reassuring had upon his head. You see, we were inseparable, and now He will not undersand this being dead. I do not understand it well, myself. o please, dear God, give him a place to wait Through the long years, a patient ghost, Until the day I meet him at Your gate.
