THE SPIRIT OF A GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG
I was standing on a hillside,
in a field of blowing wheat.
And the spirit of a German Shepherd Dog
was lying at my feet.
She looked at me with kind dark eyes,
an ancient wisdom shining through.
And in the essence of her being,
I saw her love there too.
Her mind did lock upon my heart,
as I stood there on that day.
And she told me of her story,
about a place so far away.
I stood upon that hillside,
in a field of blowing wheat
And in a twinkling second,
her spirit left my feet.
Her tale did put my heart at ease,
my fears did fade away
About what lay ahead of me,
on another distant day.
“I live among God’s creatures now,
in the heavens of your mind
So do not grieve for me my friend,
as I am with my kind.
My collar is a rainbow’s hue,
my leash a shooting star
My boundaries are the Milky Way,
where I sparkle from afar.
There are no pens or kennels here,
for I am not confined
But free to roam God’s heavens,
among my shepherd kind.
I nap the day on a snowy cloud,
gentle breezes rocking me
And dream the dreams of earthlings,
and how it use to be.
The trees are full of liver treats,
and tennis balls abound
And Milk Bones line the walkways,
just waiting to be found.
There is even a ring set up,
the grass all lush and green
And everyone who gaits around,
Becomes the Best Of Breed.
For we are all winners in this place,
we have no faults you see
And God passes out those ribbons,
to each one, even me.
I drink from waters laced in gold,
my world a beauty to behold
And wise old dogs do form my pride,
to amble at my very side.
And at night I sleep in angel’s arms,
her wings protecting me
And moonbeams dance about us,
as stardust falls on thee.
So when your life on earth is spent,
and you stand at Heaven’s gate
Have no fear of loneliness,
for Here, you know I wait.
We miss you baby girl.
Wait for us at the Rainbow Bridge.
