Bear by Shirley


These thirteen years of memories
Are all I have to last
And as my tears start flowing
My mind slips to the past.

There’s been no friend as faithful
So steadfast in his love.
I know that God did take you
For His angel high above.

But still the haven within my heart
Is like a heavy cloud.
Your voice was so quiet
But the silenc is so loud.

The only comfort left me.
You’ll not suffer any more
And your big paws will greet me
As I enter Heaven’s door.
